I have had some new information on the above names and can be of assistance.In fact, I have found some in Malaga and others in other countries.
If you would please post your own information as to your surnames and places of birth I can try to assist you in connecting the families.
I am sure as are most HIERREZUELOs that we are related.Please note tha my mother was Ophelia OBEN e HIERREZUELO and my grandmothe was Ursulina HIERREZUELO y SANCHEZ, may their souls be at rest.
The HIERREZUELOs do go back to the 16th century and I have been informed that the name was changed due to the requirements of the Inquisition.Some HERREZUELOs live in northern Spain while some HIERREZUELOs live in Malaga, Spain.
Please provide some other surnames so that we can connect the cousins.So far, I have been delighted with each HIERREZUELO cousin with whom I have corresponded.I have one who is quite elderly and whose dream it is to finally find his HIERREZUELO relatives.
Thank you for your past postings.By the way, my grandmother was born in Santiago de Cuba and her father wan in the Liberation Army.
In the 1910 census you can find HIERREZUELOs from Cuba who were tobacconists in Tampa (Crispin and Crispen) and one of them was drafted during World War I here in Jacksonville, Florida.
There was a Cuban tobacco enterprise here in Jacksonville and I am researching with a descendant of those early Cubans, hoping to find out whether a HIERREZUELO was also a tobacco maker here.
