Antonio Mendoza was from Seville, Spain in the 1830s. I know he was a butcher. He married Maria Nune. I don't know when, probably in the 1850s.
Their son was another Antonio Mendoza. He was born in Seville in about 1864. He worked in Seville as a corkmaker with a wine company. In about 1891 he arrived in Melbourne Australia. He married Emma Louise Wilson between 1892 and 1900. He worked as a carpenter and builder in Melbourne.(Antonio may have had a sister, Esther Selina Mendoza, but that is not confirmed.)
They had a son. Guess what his name was? Yes, the dynasty continued with another Antonio Mendoza, who was my grandfather. He was born 18 July 1900, Melbourne, Australia, died 3 December 1963, Sydney, Australia. He had nine children.
Antonio Mendoza (born Seville, about 1864) died 27 September 1953, in Melbourne, Australia. Emma Louise Mendoza died3 February 1942.
Can anyone help me to fill in the details about Antonio Mendoza, 'the butcher of Seville'? Or of his son Antonio the carpenter?
I went to Seville in 1997 but could get no information on how to get birth certificates or any family history information. I want to trace back from 'the butcher'.
I hope this information can help someone in their family history, anyway.
