Oñate Spain is where "Lope de Aguirre" came from.Lope was with the Pizzaro expedition in Peru.The Aguirre's were scattered throughout the Basque provinces of Spain and France.
My Aguirre side of the family are from Guipuzcoa, and Navarre, mopre than that I do not know.Our "Coat of Arms" is a Field of Red with a Gold Dextor Bend and Silver Cockle Shell in aach Quadrant".
This Coat of Arms was the first issued to the Aguirre Family in 1200 a.d.Other versions have since been issued.
