Exploration of the north of Mexico by Spain took decades after their victory in the capital of the Aztecs. The exploration of this region was delayed because the northern climate was harsher and there was no gold. The first Spanish settlement in the region was Minas de la Trinidad in 1577 and is now called Coahuila. Saltillo was settled in 1586 to form part of the province of New Spain, Nueva Vizcaya of the vice-royalty. Later it became one of the first provinces of Nueva Extremadura to be explored by Europeans.

“Coahuila and Texas” was one of the constituent states of the newly independent United Mexican States under its 1824 Constitution, and included Texas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León. That same year Nuevo León was detached, but Texas remained a part of the state until 1835, when it seceded to from the Republic of Texas.

You can expect to find records going all the way back up until 1577.
