Any Alvarez brothers in your family tree from Mexico or Spain who migrated in the Philippines sometime 1750 to 1800?

by the way, i am doing a research to confirm or deny our family oral story that we descended from a spanish friar who sired many children from local women during colonial times in the philippines. it is said that this friar migrated in the philippines along with his brothers that include soldier(s).
This is the same story I’ve heard about my Alvarez roots. Several Alvarez brothers were said to have migrated to the Philippines, settled in Cavite, then two went to Bicol, establishing our branch. Looking for proof of this.

I also connected with Alvarezes in Cebu who say we are all related but that it’s pretty messy and complicated, as you implied.

Would appreciate any information you might find. There are Alvarezes here in the US, half white, half Pinoy, who are also seeking information.
Some Alvarezes in Cebu are said to have descended from Panay Island, particularly Ilo-ilo province, Alvarez branch who migrated in Cebu and in parts of northern Mindanao island. My paternal great-great grandfather, said to be Ilonggo-speaking, migrated in Cagayan de Misamis (now Cagayan de Oro City) during colonial times, which I estimate as around late 1840s or early 1850s because his children were born in 1850s.

F. Alvarez, have you done autosomal DNA test? We can compare our DNA kits at

F. Alvarez,

Do you have any idea of the estimated time-frame your Alvarez ancestor from Spain settled down in the Philippines?
