Biographical Sketch

The Sánchez Navarro family owned the largest private estate in the history of Mexico. Circa 1763, José Miguel Sánchez Navarro, the curate of Monclova, Coahuila, began to accumulate property in Coahuila. Until his death in 1821 he attended to church matters and to his private interests in farming, ranching, commerce, and rental properties. The estate was inherited by his nephew, José Melchor Sánchez Navarro, who continued to enlarge it. His sons, Carlos and Jacobo Sánchez Navarro y Beráin, inherited the estate when José Melchor died in 1836. In 1840 Carlos purchased the marquisate of San Miguel de Aguayo, increasing the Sánchez Navarro landholdings to their maximum size of over 16 million acres. Between 1861 and 1865, most of the property was confiscated, first as payment for back taxes, then as punishment for Carlos and Jacobo's collaboration with Maximilian, Emperor of Mexico. After Maximilian was overthrown in 1867, Carlos was imprisoned for one year, then exiled. In 1870 he returned to Mexico City where he lived in poverty until he died in 1876. Carlos' heirs recovered some of the family property but subsequently sold it.
