Regarding House of Francisco Lanzagorta. Francisco Lanzagorta Inchaurregui (Real de Catorce, San Luis Potosí, 1791 - Chihuahua, Chihuahua, May 11, 1811), was a member of the Spanish royalist military who participated with the insurgents during the War of Independence of Mexico.

He took part in the insurrection of the city of San Luis Potosí along with Luis de Herrera, but was apprehended by the troops of Felix Maria Calleja on September 18, 1811 and was imprisoned in the convent of San Juan de Dios in San Luis Potosí.
