Does anyone know or have the coat of arms for a Don Diego Duarte Escudero who was created Marquis of Duarte in 1796?
I have a short "genealogystory of the name Escudero" in which several Escudero's were named.
Looks as thou they originated in the town of Espinosa de los Monteros in the distict of Villarcayo of the province of Burgos, Spain.
it says some of the descendents were in military service in the years 1620-1626; 1626-1791 in Calatrava in 1687 & in San Juan de Jerusalem in 1558.
A Don Diego Duarte Escudero was created Marquis of Duarte in 1796, & discribeshis coat of arms.
I have another articules with surname Escudero, that says Escudero's in Jaen; Castille & Extremadura & some in Portugal; Albuquerque, Spain; Brozas; Mexico City; La Concepcion de Lora, Peru; Cartagena de Indias; Buenos Aires Dominican Republic & Chili.
I'm not familiar with most of these places, but trying to find out if my Antonio Escudero was somehow related to these since these articules were sent to me by a New Your (U.S.A.) relative.
If anyone is interested, they will have to use my snail mail as I will be off the net until mid Oct of this year.
