History Alvarado Its exact etymology has not been determined. Below, some possible origins are presented. Some Gothic Knights who came to the aid of Don Pelayo in his first fights against the Moors settled in the place of Secadura, next to Laredo (Cantabria). According to several writers, the surname Alvarado is of Cantabrian origin. The GarcĂa Carraffa 1 brothers and others define him as â€œnoble lineage, which had its primitive set in the place of Secadura, of the ancient merindad of Trasmiera, mountains of Santander, and today belonging to the City Council of Voto (Junta de Voto), Partido Judicial Office of Laredoâ€?. Other chronicles say that the Alvarado linage comes from a French gentleman who came to Spain to visit the tomb of the Apostle Santiago, and who was stablished in the Trasmiera merindad, to serve God fighting against the Moors.
