Manuel Baca and the Socorro Land Grant

In late 1692 or early 1693, Manuel Baca and his family were enumerated in San Lorenzo, a community less than two leagues from El Paso:

Sixteenth household, three sons, three daughters

Manuel Baca, married to Maria de Salazar, with three sons and three daughters named Antonio, nine; Diego, one; Gregorio Baca, three; Maria, thirteen; Josefa, seven; Bernadina, five. He states that he is ready and equipped to carry out his majesty's orders, being given the aid necessary to enter and settle the Kingdom of New Mexico.
Source: John L. Kessell Rick Hendricks and Meredith Dodge, editors, To the Royal Crown Restored: The Journals of Don Diego de Vargas, New Mexico 1692-1694 (Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1995), p. 53.

They were ready to help with the re-conquest and re-settlement of New Mexico by Spain, twelve years after the Pueblo Indians had chased away the Spanish from the colony.

Manuel Baca and Maria de Salazar were progenitors of many of the Baca families in New Mexico. They were also ancestors of many of a few of the founders of the Socorro Land Grant.
