MEXICANS

FRENCH MEXICANS

Given the close connections between New Mexico and Mexico throughout history, and the extensive traveling across the American West and Southwest by pioneers, explorers, traders and soldiers, I have included below a preliminary list of the French in Mexico (French residents and French with business and other interests in Mexico). Most of the names of residents became Hispanicized.

The list is mostly, but not exclusively, based on: Houdaille, Jacques. “Les Français au Mexique et leur influence politique et sociale (1760-1800)”. In: Revue française d’histoire d’outre-mer, tome 48, n°171, deuxième trimestre 1961. pp. 143-233 which includes summary biographies.

IMPORTANT: I have changed the place where visitors to this website can make and reply to comments. This became necessary because comments were made on the various pages and so they could not be tracked properly. Comments should now be made at the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE “FORUM & COMMENTS”, if you want other people to see them and reply (or directly to me at fmpatorni@earthlink.net) . I have disabled the comments feature on the other pages. The comments that you made on various pages in the past are in my personal log, I will try to shift them to the new page, but until then the old comments will remain on the page where they were originally made.

I reply directly to the comments by e-mail to the sender, as well as occasionally through this website. This is for purely practical reasons in managing the website.
