alcorcón – a city in the Comunidad de Madrid  located on a hill which is name Al-Cor (hill in Arabic). Thus, the name is presumably of Arabic origin.

4 Generations

The first person of the Alcorcon family to arrive in Carcar was known as Mamerto Narciso. This was before the 1849-50 implementation of the Claveria decree, after which he became known as Mamerto Alcorcon. The surname’s coinciding with the Al- surnames of Carcar leads me to believe that the family received the surname in Carcar–as a Carcar family. Thus, their relatives back in Parian, if still existent then, may have gotten another name.

The earliest record I have of his family in Carcar is that of the baptism of his daughter, Areopagita. The year was 1835 and the child was baptized Dionicia Areopagita, presumably after the pseudonymic theologian often mixed up with St. Denis of France. In the record, Mamerto Narciso was said to be a feligrés of Parian de Zebu. All subsequent racial classification of the family was that of mestizo Sangley.  With this record of his still being a feligrés of Parian by 1835, thus, it can be said with some certainty that the first person of the family in Carcar really was Mamerto.

The only earlier record I have come across for a mestizo Sangley Parian family in Carcar is of an 1832 baptism for a Sagolili son. In the 2010 Voters list of Carcar, there are 32 voters surnamed Alcorcon.

[8-Feb-2012: I take back that first sentence of the preceding paragraph. I had since come across 5 baptisms in 1823 of children with parents who were Parian feligreses. However, I still cannot figure out who these families were, or meaning what surnames they later took on. ]
