EARLY VILLARREAL FAMILIES IN MEXICO
Compiled by Danny Villarreal 3/2006
The following descendant charts are from different family groups that arrived in Mexico in the early 1500Ős from Spain. I hope that these charts may offer us research opportunities. We know through DNA testing that we are more than one family group. Some of the families were cousins and brothers, it was also common for some to take the surname of their mother. Other families did not have any males to pass the name on so the New World line ended.
Current towns or cities in Spain named Villarreal:
Villareal de Huerva, Arag—n, Villareal de la Canal, Arag—n, Ciudad Real (Villarreal in old times), Castilla-La Mancha, Villarreal de San Carlos, Extremadura, Villarreal de Alava (Villarreal de Alaba), Pais, Vasco, Villarreal de Urrechua (Villarreal de Urretxu), Pais Vasco, Villarreal de los Infantes, Valenciana
Although the families that we are looking at do not come directly from these towns with the exception of those from Ciudad Real we should eventually look at these as places of origin.
