Notes

  • -  In a decree of January 13, 1528, the Crown had ordered tithes to be collected in New Spain as of December 12, 1527, the date of Juan de Zumárraga's nomination as bishop. Zumárraga had bought a house as episcopal residence and two smaller houses--one of which was being used as a prison, the other for casting bells--for which he had paid with funds from the tithes. The bishop has asked the Crown to cede all rights that pertain to it in regard to the tithes which were to be for the use of the diocese. The monarchs grant the request and command the audiencia to protect the bishop in his right.
