Blood Purity Manuscript for Juan Cano Bonilla

DATE
Year: 1723
Decade: 1720s
Century: 18th (1701-1800)

Blood Purity of Juan Cano Bonilla. This manuscript made in Puebla is usually more ornamental, artistic and folkloric. Contains the approval of the “Casa de Contratacion de Sevilla”, conceding permission to their ancestors to migrate to the New Spain in 1617; the document is reproduced.

The fleet that was to transport them to the New World is mentioned, with their corresponding permissions. From one line of ascendance it is said that they were “ganadores” (conquerors) of the land that they inhabit (Puebla).

The city of Puebla, formally Heróica Puebla de Zaragoza, is the seat of the Municipality of Puebla, the capital and largest city of the state of Puebla, and one of the five most important Spanish colonial cities in Mexico. A colonial era-planned city, it is located southeast o fMexico City and west of Mexico’s main Atlantic port, Veracruz, on the main route between the two in Central Mexico.

The city was founded in 1531 in an area called Cuetlaxcoapan, which means “where serpents change their skin”, in between of two of the main indigenous settlements at the time, Tlaxcala and Cholula. This valley was not populated in the 16th century as in the pre-Hispanic period; this area was primarily used to the “flower wars” between a number of populations. Due to its history and architectural styles ranging from Renaissance to Mexican Baroque, the city was named a World Heritage Site in 1987.
