Sample text

The time frame used here, Page 4 16501767, offers a more than adequate period during which to identify and articulate the main lines of colonial rural development in the region. The general plan I used in Lords of the Land and Farm and Factory is also used in this book. A brief survey of major geographical features serves as background for chapters on land acquisition and land use. Man-made physical structures and specific enterprises, especially mule and cattle raising, are followed by chapters on labor and financial implications.

The land was originally a grant awarded to Juan de Burgos in 1614, and when he sold it, the ranch he developed had only 237 head of cattle, 1,800 sheep, and 180 goats. 16 The soil was of high quality, hence the stiff purchase price. Added to the list of Córdoba estates in 1643 was the ranch and textile mill of Altagracia (southwest of the city of Córdoba). This was in a sense donated to the college by Alonso Nieto, who on becoming a widower entered the Society of Jesus as a lay brother and brought his estate with him.

In 1599 a cleric, Don Rodrigo Ortiz, first donated to the college a vineyard with 30,000 vines. In 1611 Doña María Obobari donated a water source for a mill. In 1621 the husband of Beatriz García de Castro sold two cuadras of land to the college and in the following years additional pieces of land were purchased. In 1638, 1654, and 1686 smaller parcels were added to the Tierra de la Frontera by purchase and others were purchased from a cleric named Molgavigo, from a widow, Juana Arevalo, and from Francisco Medina.
