Tejanos |

       MARTOS Y NAVARRETE, ÁNGEL DE (?–?). Ángel de Martos y Navarrete was governor of Texas from 1759 to 1767. The former naval lieutenant received his royal commission as governor on August 21, 1756, but his predecessor, Jacinto de Barrios y Jáuregui, was allowed to remain in Texas for the establishment of San Agustín de Ahumada Presidio, so Martos y Navarrete acted as governor of Coahuila until February 6, 1759, when the two governors changed places.
