My father’s side of the family escaped religious oppression in Yorkshire, England and travelled to America to practice their Puritan beliefs in peace with others. My mother’s side of the family came to America as a volunteer group in one of 16 families who came from the Canary Islands off the coast of Morocco under the rule of the King of Spain in 1731 to establish themselves in the province of Texas. A recession had just hit the Islands because of cash crop competition from the American colonies, so during this time many people were immigrating to various other Spanish territories. My ancestor that emigrated from those Islands, Juan Curbelo, became the 6th mayor of San Antonio in 1737, again in 1739 and his son was elected mayor for 3 different terms. His granddaughter married a man named John William Smith in San Antonio, who was the first mayor under the Republic of Texas and twice more after that, which has been credited to his wife’s influence as an original settler.
