Notes

  • -  This cedula repeats in full an earlier one issued by the cardinal in Madrid on January 9, 1540, to Viceroy Mendoza, the audiencia, and Bishop Zumárraga. In that cedula the cardinal ordered that, in view of the increase in population, the City of Mexico was to be divided into parishes, leaving one third of it to the cathedral and distributing the rest into parishes in a way that would seem best. Also specified in detail was the manner in which the tithes should be divided in both the cathedral parish and the other parishes.
