This 349 page book contains eight generations of descendants of Joseph Nicolas de Marroquin and Francisca Montemayor Rodriguez. Nicolas entered (Nuevo Leon) on or before 1707 since he married Francisca on January 9, 1707. Joseph Nicolas de Marroquin is considered to be the progenitor of the Marroquin last name in Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Texas. The time period this book covers is from the 1700s to the 1950s.
For years I have searched for the parents of Nicolas de Marroquin but have not
found them. The parents of his wife Francisca are Francisco Rodriguez de Montemayor and
Ramona de Ayala. This book includes many more generations and people than are included in the Montemayor book.
This book is also very special to me since my paternal grandmother was a Marroquin. Growing up I came to find out that it is a rare last name in Tamaulipas and South Texas. The bulk of Marroquin are found in the Allende and Santiago, Nuevo Leon area.
This work is an attempt to document the descendants of Nicolas Marroquin in order to make it easier for others to connect their Marroquin lines back to him.
