JOSEPH DE SANTA CRUZ Y GALLARDO SUHISO SOBRE EL OFICIO DE THESORERO DE LA CASA DE LA MONEDA Y UNA CHACARA Y TIERRA EN EL VALLE DE LURIGANCHO Y EL TITULO DE CASTILLA DE DHO. CONDADO [manuscript title]
[Lima], 1705. [31] leaves. [bound with:] [OFFICIAL MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT, DATED 1782 - 1783]. [34] leaves. Folio. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of pigskin ties, lettered on cover. Very minor soiling; some small ink-related paper loss. Near fine. This document comprises the petition of Luis de Santa Cruz y Padilla, general of the Royal Armies in Peru and Chile, and his wife, Julia Fernández Gallardo, for recognition of the establishment of an entailed estate in primogeniture of their farm and lands in the Valley of Lurigancho, for the confirmation of their title in Castile, and of their son as perpetual treasurer of the Royal Mint of Lima as granted by Royal Order of November 12, 1703. This is followed by a copy of the Royal Provision of appointment and entailment as perpetual treasurer and inspector, confirmation of entailed estate of lands in Lurigancho, and of the title, reciting in detail the various privileges and duties of the treasurer and inspector, given in Madrid, November 12, 1703, with confirmation by the Royal Accountants in Madrid, November 14, 1703. This is continued with the confirmation accompanied by a recital of genealogy, discussion of Santa Cruz lineages, and reiteration of the terms of the Royal Provision dated and subscribed by notary in Lima, August 3, 1705, and attested to by witnesses and subscribed by a notary in Lima, March 17, 1735. The second section is lengthy testimony in Lima on July 10, 1782 by María Narcisa de Santa Cruz y Centeno, marquise and widow of Moscoso, and Mariana de Santa Cruz y Centeno, marquise and widow of Otero, reciting lineage in support of claims in litigation with other claimants to succession in the entailed estate, prior testimony and claims of numerous heirs to inheritance, orders of monetary distributions, termination of the post of treasurer due to incapacity of the current heir and renunciation by female descendants, and agreement of the heirs to terminate the entailed estate, dated February 16, 1782. Lurigancho is an agricultural region some twenty-five miles to the east of Lima on the right bank of the Río Rimac. The area was isolated until a road was built to it through mountainous terrain during the viceroyalty of Manuel de Aman y Junient (1761-76). José de Santa Cruz y Gallardo (1661-1743), second Count of San Juan de Lurigancho, was lieutenant governor and tax collector of the province of Yamparaes, tax collector of Mizque and Pocona, and chief magistrate of the mines of the Royal District of Charcas. He traveled to Madrid and was received into the Order of Santiago, appointed Captain General of Chile, and granted the title of Count of San Juan de Lurigancho for his father in 1694-95. He returned to Lima in 1695, but his privileges were suspended by Royal Order in 1697, and he returned to Spain to reclaim them. On December 10, 1702 he was named perpetual treasurer of the Royal Mint in Lima, established in 1565 by viceroy Lope García de Castro, a post inherited by his heirs following his death, and he returned to Lima in 1703. His son, Diego Santa Cruz y Centeno (1707-74), became assistant treasurer of the mint, and in 1743 he inherited the post of treasurer from his father. In 1754 he was excommunicated, but this was lifted to permit his continuing in his post. Entailed estates, designed to maintain real property intact over generations and usually involving primogeniture, deprived other heirs of opportunity to inherit. Initially, this situation was resolved by entry into religious or bureaucratic life, but with the passage of time and subsequent increase of the number of heirs, these solutions became impossible. As more heirs of the holder of the entailed estate went from wealth to poverty on his death, the practice was abolished, and remaining estates such as this one were dissolved by mutual agreement of the family.
