; Per Farmerie:
     "I continue to work my way through Torres Sevilla's work on the early-medieval counts of Castile, and have some comments on the Castro family. The first member of the family was Fernando Garcia de Hita, who married twice, to Tegridia Perez, daughter of the Beni Gomez count Pedro Ansurez, and second to her niece Estefania, daughter of Armengol V, Count of Urgel by a sister of Tegridia. He had children by both, including sons who were prominent in the court of Castile, and a daughter who became a royal mistress to Alfonso VII.
     "One other thing that is known of him: he is called kinsman of Queen Urraca in contemporary records.
     "Ancient tradition makes the family descend from a Fernan Ruiz, with holdings around Castrogeriz, and his wife, a daughter of Pedro Ansurez. Salazar y Castro, writing about 1696, debated two possibilities. First, that he was a member of the royal family of Navarre (a brother of the murdered Sancho IV would match in name), or alternatively, that he was son of King Garcia of Galicia, Urraca's uncle. Subsequent authors seem to have accepted one of these two theories, particularly the latter. Recently, however, Salazar y Acha suggested that he was instead the elder of two Fernandos, sons of count Garcia Ordonez. This count is himself suggested to be descendant of the kings of Leon (both Ramiro III and Vermudo II), but Salazar y Acha rejects this (more below). He suggests instead that Fernando Garcia de Hita was son of count Garcia by his wife Urraca, sister of the unfortunate Sancho IV, and hence second cousin of Urraca.
     "Torres Sevilla again addresses the question, specifically addressing Salazar y Acha's theory. She finds herself not accepting his suggestion, instead reverting to the theory that Fernando Garcia de Hita was son of king Garcia. She draws this conclusion based on two specific items. First, she points to the terms 'congermanus' and 'annaya' used to express kinship between Urraca and, respectively, Estefania and Fernando. She suggests that this term is typical of a close relationship - first cousin rather than second. Second, she points to the fact that Estefania is called "infantisse" (i.e. infanta), and this is not a term used to describe anything but a child (-in-law in this case) of a king. Therefor, she finds only a connection to Garcia to be practicable.
     "While I have not the expertise to address the first, I must raise serious issue with the second. Specifically, the document in question refers to both husband and wife, "Fernandi Garcie et infantisse domine Stephanie". To me, at least, this is far from supporting the interpretation that Fernando was son of a king. The theory put forward is that Estefania is called infanta by way of her marriage to infante Fernando, son of king Garcia, but given the opportunity, this scribe has, in the same document, referred to Fernando without the title, and then immediately used it for his wife. Estefania could not have been infante-in-law, but was called infanta in her own right. My guess would be that it was as daughter of a foreign count, Armengol of Urgel, that Estefania was called infanta.
     "While not the strongest of evidence, there is also a possible onomastic link with Garcia Ordonez. By his first wife, he had sons Gutierre and Rodrigo, and by his second, Urraca, Martin, Sancha and Pedro. Of these, all of the names can be accounted for by descent from the Navarre/Leon/Castile royal family (Urraca, Sancha) or from Pedro Ansurez and wife Elo Alfonso (Gutierre, Urraca, Martin, Pedro). Rodrigo has no such precursor in these families, but Garcia Ordonez had a brother of this name who was Alferez under Alfonso VI. Of course, as no mother is known or can even be guessed for a son of king Garcia, and that might be an alternative source of the name.
     "Torres Sevilla also rejects another conclusion of Salazar y Acha. Garcia Ordonez was son of a nobleman Ordono Ordonez, by tradition a Castillian. It has been suggested that this man is identical to a known man of this name, the son of infante Ordono Ramirez and infanta Crisitina Vermudez. Salazar y Acha rejects this identity, because the latter was Asturian, not Castillian. Torres Sevilla suggests instead that the Castillian origin of Garcia Ordonez is itself a literary invention of the Cid cycle. This presents the possibility, then, that if Salazar y Acha is right about the immediate origin of the Casto clan, but Torres Sevilla is right about the origin of Garcia Ordonez, then perhaps Fidel Castro is of the male line of Pedro of Cantabria and his son Alfonso I (as opposed to being of the male line of Sancho the Great and Garcia Jimenez, which might also be interesting). taf”.13 Fernando Garcia de Hita Señor de Guadalaxara, Señor de Hita y de Cuéllar was also known as Fernando Gracia de Castro.2

; Per Genealogics:
     “Fernando Garcia de Hita was born about 1070, the son of Conde Garcia Ordoñez, señor de Nájera y de Grañón, and Urraca Garcez of Navarre. He was lord of Hita, Uceda, Guadalajara and Medinaceli, and patriarch of the house of Castro. He participated in the conquest of Almeria. Urraca, queen of Castile and León, granted him the villas of Hita and Uceda. He acted as the queen's intermediary with her second husband Alfonso I 'the Battler', king of Aragón and Navarre.
     “Fernando and his first wife Mayor Pérez de Amaya 'Doña Tigrida', señora de Castro Xerez, had two sons, Gutierre Fernández and Rodrigo Fernández, of whom Rodrigo would have progeny. There is uncertainty about her parentage; though some sources give her as the daughter of Pedro Ansurez, conde de Carrión, and Condesa Eilo Alfonso, others suggest that her parents were Conde Fernando González and Trigida Gutiérrez, or that they were Conde Gutierre Alfonso (of the house of Alfonso Diaz) and the Condesa Goto.
     “On 12 November 1119 Fernando contracted a second marriage to Estefania Armengol de Urgel, daughter of Armengol V 'el de Mayeruca', conde de Urgel, and Maria Perez, señora de Valladolid. They had two sons Martin Fernández and Pedro Fernández who would both have progeny, and two daughters Urraca Fernández and Sancha Fernández. Urraca married Rodrigo Martinez, son of Martin Alfonso Osorio and Sancha Fernandez. The couple did not have progeny, and Rodrigo was killed in the siege of Coria in 1138. Urraca later became a mistress of Alfonso VII, king of Castile and León, with whom she had a daughter Estefania who became the tragic wife of Fernán Ruiz 'el Castellano' de Castro, señor de la casa de Castro, murdered by her husband. Sancha became a nun and founded the monastery of Santa Maria de Valbuena.
     “Fernando died about 1140.”.

"Rodericus comes…cum consanguinibus meis: Semeno Enechez et mater eius dompna Maria, Don Garcia, D. Malrico, Gonsalbo de Marañon, Don Nuño, Don Rodrico, Don Alvaro, Don Pedro Garciaz, comitissa Doña Elbira, Domna Milia, Domna Santia Garciaz, Domna Mayor Garciaz, Domna Maria Garciaz" donated "villam…Gormeces" to San Pedro de Arlança, by charter dated 7 Feb 1140[1333].
     "m firstly (1120 or 1122) Infanta doña SANCHA de Castilla, daughter of ALFONSO VI King of Castile and León & his fifth wife Isabel née Zaïda --- ([1120/16 Mar 1104]-after 10 May 1125). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Sancha the wife of count Rodrigo and Elvira who married Duke Roger of Sicily" as the daughters of King Alfonso and his fourth "legitimate wife…Elisabeth"[1334]. Both daughters are named in a charter dated 16 Mar 1104[1335]. In view of the dates of their marriages, it is unlikely that they were born much before this date. This suggests that their mother may have been King Alfonso's fifth wife, formerly known by her Muslim name Zaïda, although if their estimated birth dates are correct there would have been an interval of several years between their births and the birth of their older brother Sancho, which seems surprising. "Comite domno Roderico Gonzalvus cum uxore mea Sandecia prolis filia regis Adephonsus" donated the monastery of San Mames to Santa María de Piasca by charter dated "mense Iulii, Era 1100" (misdated)[1336].
     "m secondly (before Jul 1135) as her second husband, ESTEFANIA de Urgell, widow of FERNANDO García [de Castro] Señor de Hita y Uceda, daughter of ARMENGOL [V] Comte de Urgell & his wife María Pérez Señora de Valladolid (-after 15 Feb 1143). "Regina Don Urraka tocius Ispaniæ Ildefonsi magni Inperatoris filia" granted the villa of Cevico de la Torre to "mea cogermana Domna Estefania comitis Ermegodis filia" by charter dated 30 Jun 1119[1337]. The family relationship between Estefania and Queen Urraca has not been established, unless it relates to the possible descent of Estefania´s first husband from the family of the kings of León. "Ferrando Garciez" granted arras to "uxori meæ Estefania Ermegoz comitis Ermegodis filiæ", including over property inherited from "altera muliere Tigridia", by charter dated 12 Nov 1119[1338]. Alfonso VII King of Castile granted various properties to "comiti Roderico Gonzaluez et uxori tue comittisse Stephanie Armengol et…comiti Roderici Martinez et uxori tue comitisse Urraca" by charter dated Jul 1135[1339]. "Comes Rudericus Gundisalui" granted arras to "coniugi mee comitissa domna Steuania" by charter dated 6 Sep 1135[1340]. "Stephania…comitissa bonæ memoriæ Armengoldi comitis filiæ" founded the monastery of Santa María de Valbuena by charter dated 15 Feb 1143, witnessed by "domna Urraca Ferrandiz comitissa, Martinus Ferrandiz, domna Sancia Ferrandiz, Petrus Ferrandiz, Gutterius Ferrandiz, Rodericus Ferrandiz…"[1341]."
