Saludos fellow Genealogists,

I'm currently doing research to see if there is a possible link between
my 13GGrandfather Gonzalo Baez de Benavides born ~1560 at La Orotava,
Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands and Emperor/King Alfonso VII of
Spain.

Most of the following information was found in the book "Ano Centenario
Benavides, Texas 1880-190" by Dr. Arnoldo de Leon. Within the book, it
quotes the following source: "Don Jose Abderraman Muley More, editor,
individuo correspondiente del Instituto Cubano de Genealogia y Heraldica
de Cuba y de la Sociedad Oaxaquena de Genealogia y Heraldica de Mexico.
Certefico: que segun los antecedentes obrantes en nuestro archivos, los
correspondientes al apellido Benavides son los que a continucion se
relacionan.", Emperor of Castile and Leon .

My other main source was "El Primero Benavides" by Lope De Vega.

I looking for any additional information that will help verify, expand
the following outline. Please review and let me know if you have any
questions or comments.


Muchas gracias for todo su tiempo y hasta luego.

Mario Benavides Canales
