According to Ernie Guevara from the Phillipines.The name Guevara can be found as early as 1286A.D.)In northern Spain,in the kingdom of the Navarros.A certain Count,Vela de Guevara,prince of the Navarros is mentioned.The name has its' orgin amongst the Basque.But is also linked to the Sefarditas"the Jews of Spain or Sefarad.The root of the name in its' original version "Guebara"is Ebar,which means a fern in Basque.Sefardi or not the name is associated with the nobility of Hispania.The Phillipino,conection to the name,can possibily be found inthe autos de fe of the Spanish Inquisition that continued in Mexico City.A certain Pedro de Guebara,fled Mexico to the Phillipine in 1821,for being a Judiozante.When he returned he was captured and relaxed in effigy"Relajado en estatua"which is the fancy term"BURNED AT THE STAKE"So anyone with this last name,originating in Mexico,like me.Can possibly have links to the Jews of Iberia and to his holiness Count, Vela de Guebara. Does anyone have info.on a certain Marquez de Urquijo.This Iberian Blue blood was a distant great grand uncle,he married my great grand aunt Baroness,Maria de Carmen de Federico.The Federico name is Itlian.But since Sefarad/Espania was part of the Roman empire,it balances out.My email is AlvaroGuevara@webtv.net
