Notes

  • -  Doctor Bravo de Lagunas, canon of the cathedral of Mexico, as representative of the archbishop and cathedral chapter, had informed the Crown that the Emperor had granted to the cathedral the two-ninths [of one-half] of the tithe which belonged to the Crown. This first grant had been given for three years, but it had been extended by various other grants for another 24 years. The funds were to be used for various expenses in the construction of the cathedral. The most recent extension of the grant had expired on January 9, 1563. Therefore, archdiocesan authorities requested that the grant be extended for another four years because of the needs of the archdiocese. The King here grants the requested extension, retroactive to the date of the expiration of the previous grant. He also commands the treasury officials to carry it out, turning over to the archdiocese any of the tithes which they might have collected for the King since the expiration of the last grant. They are also to see that the funds are spent for the purpose for which they were granted.
