I am searching for any info on my great grandfather Camilo Villalpando who was originally from Spain, not sure what area. He left Spain and went to Mexica and there he married Serapia Sanchez. Areas they might have lived in Mexico include Cerro Blanco and Aguas Calientes. Also, is there any connection with the last name Villalpando and the town in Spain of the same name? Does anyone have any info on the town of Villalpando? I would be interested in any and all info. Thanks. -Sylvia

Your post is interesting.

Always knew my Villalpando ancestors were somewhat arabic/semitic, however, Sephardic??

Just wondering what sources you are citing...would be genuinely interested to find out.

Please advise.

Best,
Raven Villalpando

I had been looking for the meaning of the Villalpando name and found out that Villalpando meant "A PLACE OPEN TO THE SUN" in Arabic. I was looking for the town of Villalpando, CASTILLE DE LEON, ESPANA and found out that was what it meant. Did some historical research and found out that the early PHOENCIANS, a semtic peoples/PRESENT DAY SYRIA had come to espania early years of civilization about 800b.c. and much later the MOSLEMS invaded Spain in the 7th century A.D.(A HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION, PREHISTORY TO 1300; 5TH ED/ ISBN 0-13-389791-5)Spain
was occupied by the MOSLEMS/ARABS for at least 750 years. So many people in Spain were Jews or Sephardic....meaning Spainsh Jews....check out the following website....SEPHARDIM.COM OR SEPHARDIMFORUM@YAHOOGROUPS.COM.
During the reign of Queen Isabella and Ferdinand (abt. 1478)they and the Holy Church decided the Jew and the Moslems needed to be expelled from Spain, so those Jews became crypto Jews or Marranos. So many of them went to various other countries to avoid persecution and the inquistions. Many converted to Catholicism, but later would revert to Jews.
Anyway that is the best I can explain for now. There are many resources at the public library. One of our ancestors was a famous MASTER OF PLASTER SCULPTURE--Jeronimeo Corral de Villalpando, brother of Juan Bautista Villalpando and a close relative of Francisco de Villalpando. Do not for sure how these men are related to our line. My line comes from VILLALPANDO, CASTILLE DE LEON, ESPANA. My earliest relative I have been able to find is Juan de Villalpando from Villalpando.....1650. His son Juan de Villalpando came to Northern New Mexico and that is my family. Do you have any idea about your relatives.??? I am interested.We may be related!!!
This genealogy thing is almost an obession with me....the more I dig, the more I want to know . It involves history and archeology.
Good resource books "SPAIN, CONCISE HISTORY", BY Melveena McKendrick, ISBN 07-0453350-0 and another is "FAREWELL ESPANA, THE WORLD OF THE SEPHARDIM REMEMBERED", BY Howard M. Sachar, ISBN0-679-40960-2 . Check them out and check out the genealogy section in the library and the Mormon church...Family history Center and on line check out Familysearch.org. Ancestry.com...the family tree for Villalpandos and there are at least 500 names currently on there. Mine is Jose RomanVillalpando, I don't have all the info posted yet.
Hope you have a HAPPY HOLIDAY AND ALSO GOOD HUNTING.

I have seen "records" that say the son if from Mexico and others that say Spain



Origins of New Mexico Families shows Juan de villa el Pando was a native of la villa de leon, and a soldier of Santa Fe, when he married Ana Maria Romero, June 2, 1694. His parents were Juan de villa el Pando and Ursula Olaes. He was dead by 1718, when a son of theirs got married; his widow was known also as "la panda".


His mariage record states: Juan de villalpando, presidio soldier, n. of La Villa del Con(il), son of Juan de Villa el Pando and Ursula de Olaes, and Maria Romero, d. of Alonso Romero and Maria de Tapia, natives of New Mexico....



--------------------------------------------------------------------------Spain---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The northern plateau
The autonomous region of Castile and Leon includes much of northern Spain. Castile and Leon borders Asturias and Cantabria in the north, the Basque Country, La Rioja, Aragon, Castile-La Mancha and Madrid in the east, Extremadura and Castilla-La Mancha in the south; and Portugal and Galicia in the west.

Castile and Leon belong to the lower northern plateau with the exception of the north eastern province of Burgos that is lies in the Ebro depression. The whole area is surrounded by mountains. There are notable foothills arising from the Cantabrian mountain range in the north. The Leon mountains, also in the north, lie in the shadow of these mountains. The Iberian mountain range rises from the northeast, with numerous sierras crossing over into the region.

Formerly the capital of the medieval kingdom of the same name, it was united with Castilla in the 13th century.
The city's most famous monument is its great 13th-century Gothic cathedral known for its stained-glass and rose windows. Also important to visit is the Romanesque Church of San Isidoro with the pantheon of monarchs from Castilla y Leon. One of Antoni Gaudi's more conservative buildings is in León, Casa de Botines. The San Marcos monastery is a good example of the Renaissance period. On the outskirts of Leónare the Roman gold mines, Las Medulas
---------------------------------------------------------------------------Mexico-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Leon City is located to the north of the State of Guanajuato, by th FPRIVATE "TYPE=PICT;ALT=Triumphal Arch in leon, guanajuato, mexico"

History: In Pre-Hispanic times this region was originally inhabited by a diverse variety of inus tribes, such as the Toltecas, Chichimecas and Guamares. The Alfaro and Ibarrilla archaeological sites outside Leon, show that the most ancient date back to the Pre-Classic period.

Viceroy Don Martin Enriquez de Almanza originally founded Villa de Leon on January 20, 1576 as a defense stronghold against attracts by the Chichimeca tribe, Leon became a municipality in 1980, then officially became a city in 1830 and given the name Leon de los Aldama. During the Mexican Independence movement, Leon suffered economically, socially and politically.

1579 Luis de Carbajal returns to Spain and makes a contract with the King to conquer and settle six hundred square leagues with name New Realm of Leon. 117-63 After crossing the San Juan river and naming it, he entered into the Monterrey area. From there, Carbajal traveled north and then east and arrived at the site where he established the new settlement of Leon (Cerralvo). Carbajal was a Portuguese Jew and traveled with an expedition of about 200 men, many of whom were from the old province of Leon in Spain. The area was very similar to there home in Spain, so the men named the new province Nuevo Reino de Leon (New Realm of Leon). 117-3 Later with some settlers from Saltillo, Carbajal established a settlement north of the springs of Monterrey and named it San Luis. Carbajal named as the first councilman, Gaspar de Castaño, who during this time settled a farm known as San Francisco (Apodoca). 117-66
