Don Antonio Urrutia de Vergara (1598-1667) was a Spaniard of Basque descent and one of New Spain's most prominent merchants. In 1664, he acquired a mayorazgo (an entailed estate) in the San Miguel Tlaixpan region of Mexico. This plot of land served as the foundation for the family’s expansive landholdings. Nahuas (indigenous Nahuatl speakers) owned parcels of land that later formed portions of the Urrutia de Vergara family's estate.

Don Antonio and his wife, Doña Maria Bonilla Bastida, founded three other mayorazgos. The first was for his eldest daughter, Ana Urrutia de Vergara and her husband, Alfonso Flores de Valdez. The second mayorazgo went to Don Antonio’s second daughter, Juana. And the third mayorazgo was bequeathed to Ana’s eldest son, Don Augusto and his heirs upon Ana’s death.
