Diego de Temiño

Brief Biography

Diego de Temiño was not present at the 1540 muster. Through a secondary source from the first half of the 1600s comes the information that the brother of Baltasar de Bañuelos, someone Temiño, died in Corazones. Another source says his name was Diego. If this documentary information is correct, then Diego was probably a native of La Bureba in Burgos province because Baltasar was.
