Regarding José de la Borda. José de la Borda (Joseph de Laborde in French; c. 1700 – May 30, 1778) was a French/Spaniard who migrated to New Spain in the 18th century, amassing a great fortune in mines in Taxco and Zacatecas in Mexico. At one point, he was the richest man in Mexico. He is best remembered today through several architectural works that he sponsored, the most monumental being the Santa Prisca Church in Taxco.
