Basque Families of Antioquia, Colombia

Surnames beginning with C

by Pieter Hartog

The following is an extract from Colombian publications on this subject, and does not only cover pure Basque families but as well families from adjacent provinces from the Spanish Kingdom.

Following families are considered nowadays "Antioqe\361an" or "Paisa", as typical from the department of Antioquia (Colombia). Note that close to a 100% of these families entered the territory of nowadays Colombia through the port of Cartagena de las Indias. In a seperate e-mail I will give you some info on families who did not travel further into Colombia, but stayed in Cartagena or closeby located coastal cities or townships.

Ignacio de Castañeda, born in Bilbao around 1645-1650, was the first of
this family to arrive in Antioquia.
He was the son of Juan de Castañeda Isla (son of Sebastián de Castañeda x
Ursula de Isla) x María Ortiz de Ugalde (daughter of Diego Ugalde de
Salazar y Lagarcha x Agustina de Escuza)

He married around 1675 in Santafé de Antioquia Gertrudis de Atehortúa
(daughter of Antonio de Atehortúa x Francisca Zapata). Out of this
1) Maria Javiera de Castañeda x Antonio Londoño
2) Ignacio de Castañeda x Javiera Londoño (sister of Antonio Londoño)
3) Javier de Castañeda

Ignacio de Castañeda died before 1688, as his widow was then married with
Pedro del Mazo (see also family ATEHORTÚA).
Further no info at hand on any descendants out of the marriage between
Ignacio de Castañeda x Javiera Londoño.

Martin Chavarriaga, originally from Usurbil in Vizcaya, was the founder of
the Chavarriaga family in Antioquia.
There is no information available on his parents or grandparents.
He married in Medellín on October 8th 1668 with Josefa Alvarez del Pino,
widow of José Mejía de Tobar.
