THE EXPULSION OF MEXICO'S SPANIARDS 1821-1836
"Mexico's republican government attempted to expel all males born in Spain. They were expelled right after the Ind...ependence of Mexico. To remain in Mexico, a Spaniard had to gain exceptions to both national and state laws. The employees law of 10 May 1827, removed Spaniards from government posts. Then the expulsion law of 20 December 1827 included single men "capitulados", (Spanish born expeditionary troops who capitulated to Agustin de Iturbides army) and clergy. Together these two laws accounted for the departure of roughly 27 percent of Mexico's more than 6,600 Spaniards. Dissatisfaction with these remedies led for demands of "total" expulsion which resulted in the law 20 March 1829 targeting married men and merchants. Only incapacitating illness could gain exception. Also, in New Mexico there were only 13 native born Spaniards and 4 of them were priests. All were expelled except two priests who were too old to travel"

"The word presidio comes from Latin, the language of the Romans. The Romans, who conquered many territories throughout the Mediterranean world, including Spain,... called their military garrisons praesidium, and each praesidium presided over a military district....Spanish presidio was more than just a military base. It was also a community, with housing for the troops and their families. It also had other amenities, such as a blacksmith’s shop, carpenter’s shop, rudimentary medical facility and chapel. Each presidio also had a tract of land nearby that was used to grow crops to support the men and families living there. " http://www.californiafrontier.net/soldiers-presidios/
