La iglesia de la Trinidad era la que funcionaba dentro de la villa de San Salvador y en 1539 ó 1540 se llevó a cabo el primer matrimonio religioso documentado en el territorio. Este fue entre Francisco Castellón y Catalina Gutiérrez, mujer mestiza, hija del artillero Diego de Usagre y una mujer Mixteca (grupo indígena étnico proveniente de México) conocida como Magdalena. Francisco Castellón y Catalina Gutiérrez tuvieron cinco hijos: Lucas, Marcos, Juan, Leonor y Francisca Castellón y Gutiérrez.

Las relaciones sociales, incluyendo a la unión biológica entre indígenas y españoles contribuyeron al proceso de mestizaje en la villa de San Salvador.
