Biographical information

schöner1999, p. 114, states him as listed in the card index of the AHPV, without further specification, as being active in Valladolid in the first half of the 16th century. Another Miranda was active in Granada at the same time, and the Juan de Miranda Bejerano active in Valladolid as a player of the vihuela de arco in the early 17th century could well be a relative.
Cristina Diego (EM2009): leased a building in from the Colegiata in 1518, and the lease was trasnferred to Miranda’s sons on his death so that they could continued the business: Archivo Histórico Nacional, Madrid, sección clero, protocolo 1, 1518, fol. 250: “contrato de arrendamiento de una casas que posee la Igla Santa Maria la Mayor en el Cañuelo a favor de Juan de Miranda violero”). Protocolo 7, 1528, fols. 458-463: “arrendamiento de unas casas por los hijos de Juan de Miranda, violero, difunto”.
