In the early to mid-1700s and through the 1800s, we begin seeing the family name Andalon in the Americas, specifically in records pertaining to the inhabitants of western territories colonized by the Spaniards that eventually became municipalities of Mexico, including: Jalostotitlan, Jalisco; Encarnacion de Diaz, Jalisco; Ameca, Jalisco; Guadalajara, Jalisco; Teuchitlan, Jalisco; Tequila, Jalisco; and Ahualulco de Mercado, Jalisco. While not as prevalent as in the State of Jalisco, the family name Andalon also appears in the archival records of these neighboring Mexican States: Nayarit, Aguascalientes, and San Luis Potosi.
During the mid-1800s, the family name Andalon also begins appearing in official Mexican populace governmental records; that is, in non-church records. Complementing existing church archives relating to marriages, baptisms, burials, and parishioners, etc., these civil records denote births, parental and other family member data, places of residence, and other census-related vital statistics.
