Biographical information

reynaudPT, p. 402: • 1537.03.13 Francisco Tofiño renews the lease of a shop of a deceased violero named Valdivieso, located in Calle de los lauderos, probably near that of Diego de Medina, witness to the lease doc, and also belonging to the capilla of don Pedro Tenorio for 1575 mrs/yr and cinco gallinas.

A tañedor named Alonso de Valdivieso played for the feast of the Assumption in Toledo c. 1520 with two companions. Perhaps the same man?
romanillos2002 reiterates the 1537 detail but inserts the name Alonso from the c. 1520 reference [check?]
