  • Martín de Goiti was one of the soldiers who accompanied the Spanish colonization of the East Indies and the Pacific, in 1565. From his main base in Mexico City, he was the leader of the expedition to Manila, ordered by Miguel López de Legazpi in 1569. There, he fought a number of battles against the Muslim, Tariq Suleiman, the Hindu, Rajah Matanda, and the Taoist, Lakan Dula of the kingdoms in Luzon; for control of the lands and its settlements. He is also known for his statesmanship by betrothing his Basque sister to Batang Dula, the eldest son and successor apparent of Lakan Dula of Tondo "東都", the paramount ruler of Manila. Eventually their descendants unified the 3 royal houses of Tariq Suleiman, Rajah Matanda and Lakan Dula with the basque de Goiti family. The Dula y Goiti family eventually married with the Mendoza family who came over from Latin-America, who were Sephardic Hebrews that were practicing Catholics. Afterwards, the Dula y Goiti surname was shortened to Dulay.
