Irish in Spain (V): O'Ryan of Seville, and Mexico

At the Cathedral in Mexico City in March 1822, Don Daniel O'Ryan, a 33-year-old native of Seville, son of Don Baltasar O'Ryan and Doña María Rafaela (Vanhez?), married Doña Manuela Payno, an 18-year-old Spaniard native to Badajoz.

Daniel was probably a son of this Baltasar O'Ryan, who won a Royal Warrant from the Royal Chancellery of Granada in 1806 upholding his gentry status, or hidalguía.
