Sansoric, María de, fl. 1572-1597 (or Sansores, widow of Pedro Ocharte; Petri Ocharte)

After the death of Pedro Ocharte in 1592, María de Sansoric had the press and there were 2 books produced – one in 1594 (De Institutione Grammatica) and one in 1597 or 1598 (Secunda Pars Calendarij ad vfum Fratrum minorum). In 1597 the print shop was moved to the Colegio de Tlatelolco where she was collaborating with Cornelio Adriano César. This same year she passed the press to her son Melchor, where he worked with his half brother Luis Ocharte Figueroa.
