The first Cañamal Guerra immigrant to arrive in New Spain (Mexico City) was the son of Antonio Guerra-Cañamal and Maria de Porras, married in 1588 in Spain, named after his father, Antonio. Antonio Guerra Cañamal II, the son, was baptized at the Basilica Santa Maria de Llanes June 26, 1603 in Llanes. Asturias, Spain. At age 21, hearing about the New World, Antonio II pursued service with the King of Spain that gave him the opportunity to travel to the New World. He was Captain in the Spanish Army. The sailing date is unknown since the List of passengers sailing from Seville was only up to 1599. It is estimated that he sailed sometime during the 1620s, since his marriage to Doña Luisa Fernandez de Rio Frio took place in Mexico City on December 22, 1624. Soon after he arrived in the New World, he got married in the Cathedral of Mexico City. Luisa Fernandez Del Rio Frio was a Mestiza (Indian and Spanish descent). Her lineage could have been Olmec, Aztec, Tlascalan, Haustec, Mixtec, or of any other combination that lived in Mexico City by 1624. By this time most of the Indians were of mixed lineages. He was the first generation who settled in Mexico City in the 17th century and later families scattered throughout Mexico in other cities such as Monterrey, Cerralvo, Mier, and Revilla (Old Guerrero).
