Notes

  • -  The Prince reminds the audiencias that he has appointed bishops with good qualifications for the dioceses in their jurisdictions and that the bishops and their vicars should be given due honor and their cathedrals favored. He commands, therefore, that they be given such honor and that the cathedrals be assisted and given the preeminence which is their due. The annotation preceding the copy of the cedula records that in Mexico City on July 12, 1554, Pero Ramírez Cabezudo, fiscal of the city and of the archdiocese and its court, appeared in the presence of Juan Cano, alcalde ordinario of the city, and of Pedro de Salazar, notary public, and asked in the name of Archbishop Alonso de Montúfar that notarized copies of the cedula be made. The alcalde ordered it to be done. Witnesses, Cristóbal de Heredia and Alonso de Trujillo, notaries public. The annotation following the cedula states that the copy was made on July 12, 1554. Witnesses, Alonso de Mansilla, Juan de Ybarreta, and Melchor de Miranda. It is signed by Alcalde Ordinario Juan Cano and the notary, Pedro de Salazar.
