Meaning, Origin, Etymology
The Navarro surname is a locational surname. It is Spanish but may also be French or Italian, in Britian it is Nabarro. It describes a former resident of the ancient kingdom of Navarre, now divided between France and Spain. The name means the treeless country or perhaps the country above the trees. This name was also a nickname that was given to gentlemen and knights that were from Navarre and participated in the Spanish reconquest. Navarre was originally part of the Kingdom of Pamplona, which is one of the ancient kingdoms in Spain. In Spain it is derived from the Basque word ‘nava’ or ‘naba’ which means ‘plain near the mountains.’ In Italy Navarro was first found in Bolgna (Latin: Bononia) which is the largest city and capital of the Emilia-Romagna Region. Navarre today is a semi-autonmous region in northern Spain. It was once a Basque kingdom known as The Kingdom of Navarre, which reached its zenith under the reign of King Sancho III who reigned from in the eleventh century AD. It is believed the city’s name derived from the Basque world nabar (brownish or multicolour), or from naba (valley of plain) and herri (people or land). Others say it means “treeless county” or “the country above the trees”. The name was also present in the Christian Kingdom of Aragon during medieval times. The first documented bearer was Francisco Navarro who was christened in 1510 AD at Madrid Cathedral.
Juan Navarro was born in Navarra, Spain (Espana) in 1482 AD. In 1523, he married Maria Rodriguez, and had a son with her named Juan.

He married Maria Rodriguez de Sosa and had the following children with her prior to his death in Saltillo, Mexico: Francisca, Beatriz, Mariana Navarro Rodriguez, Martin Navarro Rodriguez, Melchora Navarro, Ursula Innes Catarina Navarro Rodriguez, Maria Ines Navarro Rodriguez, and Ana Maria Navarro Rodriguez.
Angel Navarro was born in Ajaccio, Corsica, France in around 1749. He went to Mexico and married Maria Josefa Gertrudis Ruiz, and had the following children with her prior to his 1808 in San Antonio, Texas: Jose Francisco, Jose Angel, Maria Gertrudis, Maria Simona, Maria Josefa, Maria Josefa Candida, Jose Francisco Salas, Jose Antonio Baldomero, Maria Antonia, Jose Luciano, Jose Anselmo, and Jose Eugenio Nepomuceno.

NAVARRO OF SAN ANTONIO
Juan Navarro married 1st Juliana del Rio, and they had a son Juan Andres, born 1773 and a daughter Maria Josefa born 1775 he married 2nd 1778, Josefa Flores (Pedro and Isabel Delgado), and they had a daughter Maria Antonia married 1803 Jose Leal. Juan Antonio Navarro sold Bartolo Seguin a lot on Real St., August 31, 1780; it measured 10 by 40 v., and entered the Plaza de Armas (Military Plaza); it was improved with a chamaquero of frame, or good lumber (buena madera); it was bounded E, street; N, land of Cabo Pedro Peres; W, Josefa Flores; S, Angel Navarro. I. Angel Navarro was a native of Ajaccio, Corsica, “a countryman of Napoleon Bonaparte, the latter going toward the rising sun to become the greatest man mentioned in secular history, and the former toward the setting sun to a small border town in the wilds of Texas,” says Rodriguez (Memoirs), “where unknown to fortune and renown, he quietly passed away in peace and contentment.” He left his native island, Corsica in 1772, when about 13 or 14 years of age; visited in Genoa, Barcelona and Cadiz; and after service in the Spanish army, emigrated to Mexico. He was a resident of Real de Bayecillos for eight years, and came to San Antonio in the capacity of a merchant, in about 1777. The Bexar Archives May 14, 1792 says “after six years he married,” and in 1792 he had been married nine years. He was alcalde in 1790. On June 27, 1808, he purchased a lot 10 v. square from Manuela de la Pena. He was the first one buried in the Campo Santo, which replaced the original cemetery immediately surrounding the parish church, on the plaza, and which was removed to the site of present Milam Square, his burial taking place with religious ceremony, November 1, 1808. The Navarro home was at the northeast corner of Presidio and Flores Streets (Commerce and N. Flores); it had adobe walls 3 1/2 ft. thick. To the N, was the famous Zambrano Row; the immediate property to the N, being the Bartolo Seguin chamacuero, referred to above, 1780. Angel Navarro married Maria Josefa Ruiz y Pena, daughter of Manuel Ruiz de Pesia and Manuela de la Pena, of Spanish and creole origin, native of San Antonio, according to the Navarro Apuntes Historicos. They had 1. Jose Francisco Eduardo, born 1783. 2. Jose de los Angeles born 1784. 3. Maria Gertrudis. 4. Maria Simona 5. Maria Francisca Candida. 6. Maria Josefa Candida. 7. Jose Francisco Salas born 1794. 8. Jose Antonio Baldomero, born February 27, 1795, San Antonio. 9. Maria Antonio born 1797. 10. Jose Luciano born 1800. 11. Jose Anselmo born 1802. 12. Jose Eugenio, born 1803 died intestate, 1838. According to local tradition Angel Navarro left three daughters Juana adopted by Juan Veramendi, married Alejo Peres; Gertrudis, adopted by Luciano Navarro married Miguel Cantu and Josefa called “Chipita,” adopted by Luz Escalera. II. Jose Angeles (2), a Lieut. under Arrendon; married 1st Concepcion Cervantes (Jose and Barbara Peres or Pozos); and married 2nd 1831, Maria Juana Ramires (Jose and Maria or Juana Josefa de la Garza). By the 1st marriage 1. Maria Petra born 1814. By the 2nd marriage 1. Jose de los Angeles Narciso born 1832. 2. Federico. Jose Angel proclaimed the plan of Iturbide in San Antonio, when Governor Martinez surrendered to him, delivering all the government archives, and afterwards adhering to Iturbide’s plan of independence. From this period dates the restoration and return of the Navarros, who, like Col. Francisco Ruiz their mother’s brother, had been in refuge in the United States. In 1825, April 22, he purchased a dilapidated house and lot from Maria Josefa de Zaga and Francisco Perez. He was the Political Chief in Bexar, 1835. III. Jose Antonio (8) born February 27, 1795. Early in his boyhood he lost his father and went to work in a mercantile establishment in Louisiana. He was fond of reading books, and as scarce as they were, he practically educated himself, says Feliciano Flores (Sketch, Ms.); though Dixon says he was educated in the best college in Spain and received a literary degree. He was a friend of Stephen F. Austin, adds Flores, and accompanied him to Mexico to obtain his colonization contract. As a member of the Coahuila-Texas State Congress, he fought for Constitutional Government, and was frequently referred to as the Americanized-Texan. In 1831 he was appointed Commissioner of De Witt’s colony. In 1833 he was elected supplementary representative to the General Congress of Mexico. From 1834-1835 he was Land Commissioner for the District of Bexar. In 1835 he was elected senator, but this position he declined and resigned, as he had already made up his mind to join the Texas struggle for Independence. The same year he was elected by Bexar, to the Convention at Washington-on-Brazos. In that body, with Ruiz and De Zavala, the three Spanish-Americans gave it some appearance of being more than a mere assembly of disgruntled Anglo-Americans, says Barker. Navarro was signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Menefee tells us that his modest bearing attracted the attention of the delegation, and that “He at first appeared ill at ease, but as he came in contact with the delegates who greeted him cordially, he threw off his reserve and mingled freely with them and impressed them all that was sincerely devoted our cause. When he and Mr. Zavala were appointed on the Committee to draft the Constitution, he seemed greatly pleased… During the preparation of the Constitution he made frequent suggestions regarding its phraseology, demonstrating his familiarity with Republican institutions.” Navarro was appointed one of the Commissioners to accompany the Santa Fe expedition. He was captured and imprisoned in the Acordadad (for the first two years) and then in the dungeon of the San Juan Ulloa. Santa Ana condemned him to life imprisonment, and close confinement; though he offered him his liberty and high office if he would turn against Texas. When Herrera succeeded Santa Ana, Navarro secured his release and immediately left for Texas, landing at Galveston February 15, 1845. “He at once proceeded to San Antonio and was elected a delegate to the Convention which framed the State Constitution. He served in the First State Senate. Colonel Edward Burleson, son of the General and Vice-President, was a close personal friend of Mr. Navarro’s; in speaking of him, he said: “Mr. Navarro was no ordinary man. He was a strong supporter of our American institutions public spirited and progressive in thought. He often referred to his confinement in a Mexican prison and of the suffering endured by the Texan prisoners in their forced march from Santa Fe to Mexico City. He was a man of means and spent his money freely to relieve the suffering of the Texans on their march. Colonel Cooke told me that ‘had it not been for the generosity of Mr. Navarro many more of the Texan prisoners would have perished than did.'” “When Navarro County was created from Robertson County in 1846 it was named in honor of Jose Antonio Navarro, a Mexican patriot and signer of the Declaration Of Texas Independence.
When Navarro County was organized and a permanent seat of government established in 1848, it was named Corsicana in honor of his father’s place of birth, Corsica.” “After more than twenty years of public service to his beloved country and having led a useful life, on January 13, 1871, at his home in San Antonio, in an old fashioned stone building which is still standing at the NE corner of Nueva and Laredo Streets, surrounded by his loving family, there passed away one of the greatest characters in Texas history, Colonel Jose Antonio Navarro, the Texas patriot, who was lad to rest in San Fernando Cemetery.” Jose Antonio Navarro, according to his will, dated San Antonio, February 15, 1817, had five children: 1. Jose Antonio George. 2. Celso Cornelio married Agapita Garcia; lived in Atascosa County. 3. Angel 4.
