This book contains six generations of descendants of Diego de Treviño and Beatriz de Quintanilla. Their children were born in the 1550’s through the 1570’s in Mexico City and other regions of Mexico. The descendants of Diego are considered to be the progenitors of the Treviño last name in Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Texas.
I had initially published this book with Diego Temiño de Banuelos and Francisca de Alcocer, whom many researchers think are the parents of Diego de Treviño but after evaluating all my data and sources I believed that I did not have the unquestionable proof due to the so much conflicting information that is out there. So I did the right thing and updated the book to start with Diego de Treviño and Beatriz de Quintanilla. The documents starting with them are abundant and the sources are plentiful.
To this date the parents of Beatriz de Quintanilla are unknown to me.
I do not know much about the life of Diego de Treviño but it is estimated that he was born about 1535 in Spain and that he married Beatriz de Quintanilla in about 1757 in Mexico City.
This book is an attempt to document the descendants of Diego de Treviño and is by far a complete or full work. I hope that as I continue to gather and correct information I get the chance to publish a second edition sometime in the future that contains more descendants and more complete family groups. Research is a never ending endeavor.
Note: Treviño evolved from the last name of Tremiño.
