Parentage of Maria Victoria Tenorio

 © Kathy Duncan, 2016

My trip to the library confirmed the parentage of Maria Victoria Tenorio, mother of Maria Apolonia Martin, wife of Francisco Xavier Sanchez.

Thenorio, Maria Victoria bapt. 15 April 1759, daughter of Manuel Thenorio and Polonia Sandoval; gp/el Alferez Don Bartholome Fernandez and Dona Luisa Thenorio.

Victoria's parents married two years before her birth:

26 July 1757 - Manuel Thenorio de Alba y Corona married Dona Polonia Sandoval, both single. Witnesses: Phelippe Tafoya and the Sargent Reformo Cristoval Martin

Regrettably, neither of these records reveals the parents of Manuel Thenorio or Apolonia Sandoval.

By 1760, Apolonia Sandoval was widowed and was remarrying. That record revealed her parentage:

1760, Nov. 29 (no. 5), Santa Fe or Santa Cruz. Jose Salvador Garcia (33) of Santa Cruz, widowed of Da. Maria Martin, son of Capt. Don Juan Esteban Garcia de Noriega and Da. Luisa Gomez del Castillo, and Da. Apolonia Sandoval of Santa Fe, widow of Manuel Tenorio, daughter of Don Antonio Sandoval and Da. Josefa Duran y Chaves.  Witnesses: Felipe Tafoya, Santa Fe notary. Manuel de Arteage, Santa Cruz notary; Antonio Dominguez (48), Jose Fresquis (49).
