Juan de Solís Farfán

Brief Biography: 
Juan de Solís Farfán was present at the 1540 muster as a horseman in Luna y Arellano's company. There are documentary records for both a Juan de Solís and a Juan de Farfán, but nothing except the muster for a Juan de Solís Farfán. Therefore, it is not clear if those records pertain to the expeditionary.
