From The Historical Research Center
The Spanish surname Ortiz has had a long and distinguished association with the province of Valencia in Spain.The Surname is of Patronymic Origin,being derived from the Latin personal name "Fortunio",meaning one who is "fortunate".The leading family of the name in the province of Valencia claim their descent from one Rodrigo Ortiz,a captain in the army of King Jaime I of Aragon.This Rodrigo Ortiz played a leading role in the conquest of Valencia by the Aragonese,being involved in both the surrender of the fortress of Ares and the siege of Burriana.
An early record of the surname is that of one Francisco Ortiz who was born in the Valle de Gordejuela in 1590.Martin de Valencia in his "Cronica de Valencia" cites various individuals of the Ortiz family who distinguished themselves in the history of their province.One of the earliest records of the surname on the American continent is that of Diego Ortiz de Largacha,who was born in Nueva Veracruz in 1632.
The title of Conde de Donadio de Casasola is held by one Enrique Ortiz Lopez-Valdemoro,while Francisco Alberto Ortiz de la Rocamattei is recognized as the Maques de Lises.
