Documents Regarding the Moctezuma Family: Francisco Moctezuma Yquirogachiltoto

DATE
Century: 17th (1601-1700)

Reports from the confraternity  “Del Santisimo Sacramento” of Mexico City, about internal elections of the yeas 1697, 1698, 1699, 1701, 1702, 1703. 

Some of the documents describe the number of votes that Francisco Moctezuma received.  With signatures by Francisco Moctezuma.  Founded by Hernan ( Hernando) Cortes, Spanish conquerors and the first Native inhabitants in 1526, the “Cofradia del Santisimo Sacramento y Caridad” is without a doubt the religious organization that reached the upmost prestige during the three centuries of Spanish Colonial rule. 

The Moctezuma family was highly involved in this confraternity: the descendants of Isabel Moctezuma, Andrade Moctezuma and Cano Moctezuma (the three most important branches of the family) from which many got to be rectors. These current documents are related to Francisco Moctezuma Yquirogachiltoto who is most likely a descendant of one of those 3 branches. (Josefina Muriel.
