Juan Nepomuceno Castel de Oro

This reference to Juan Nepomuceno Castel de Oro is from a book entitled Los Cirujanos de Hospitales de la Nueva España (1700-1833) by Maria Luisa Rodriguez-Sala. Apparently he was a surgeon and involved in the military. It is the first example I’ve found of a Castel De Oro in Mexico that actually connects the surname back to a specific area of Spain, namely the kingdoms of Castile in the Guipúzcoa Province of San Sebastián in the Basque Country of Northern Spain.
