Juan de Vallarra

Brief Biography

There are only two mentions in the documentary record of an individual with a name close to the expeditionary's. Therefore, Juan de Vallera is probably the person present at the 1540 muster as a footman. If correct, then Vallarra was a native of Villar del Pedrosa (Cáceres province) and the son of Alonso Sánchez de Mateo and Isabel González.
