|Summary:||Ms. patent of nobility, granted to Alvar Gonçalez el Moxo in Granada on Jan. 27, 1567. In the customary manner, Gonçalez presents his petition for status as an "hidalgo" to the "alcaldes de los hijos dalgo", the clerk of the province of León, and then to the president and judges of the Audiencia de Granada. Witnesses in support of his request offer their testimony, including several neighbors: Francisco Gómez, Francisco Benítez, Gaspar Sánchez el Viejo, Pedro Muñoz el Viejo, Juan Sánchez de Martín Sánchez, and Elvira Rodríguez. The final judgment is handed down on Jan. 27, 1567 in Granada, and signed by Licenciados Mesía de Frías, y Reinoso, Dr. Torres, and notary Diego de la Pena Vallejo. Added document, dated Feb. 9, 1567, certifies that Gonçalez's judgment has been received and registered by town officials.
