Welcome Bienvenidos Asencio’s!

Published by

We are Aaron, Emily, Diego and Scarlett.  To all the other Asencio’s out there, I would like to thank you for visiting our site and sharing your stories. My great grandfather Antonio Asencio emigrated from Guadalajara, Mexico. Antonio’s son, also named Antonio, had four sons: Antonio (Tony), Adrian, Edmond, Joseph, and Johnny and two daughters: Loretta and Doreen. Adrian is my father. To the best of my knowledge all of our relatives live in Southern California.  Please feel free to post where your family originates from and anything else you would like to share.

    I was born and raised in Texas, son of Arnulfo Ascencio Cuin and Maria Guadalupe Ybarra Ascencio Ihad never realized that there are so many Ascencio in existence. In search of the meaning of the last name I found out that it means to ascend in reference to the followers of Christ the ascencus, could be of Frank and Germandescent as well as Italian and Spanish Basque.

    Hello,
    I have a very interesting story about how I came to the last name Ascencio. My father is Luis Antonio Ascensio-Martinez. He was born in El Salvador in 1949 and abandoned at a very early age. After 3 to 4 years without proper looking after, a business lady (a saint really) by the name of Matilda Martinez adopted him and gave him her last name, enter Martinez. My father then migrated to the United States (So California) and made his life here. There was always an unknown for me when it came to my last name because I never knew my grandfather or blood related grandmother. I did meet Matilda (my grandmother), but very little was shared of my father’s mother. My father did track down his father, Anotio Ascencio who lived in No California (San Francisco) but passed away before I could meet him. I always felt a little disconnected with my last name but thanks to sites like this, I can feel a greater sense of connection (so thanks for the website!). Any-who, if you know of any Ascensio’s that live in Northern California (bay area) and know who Antonio Ascencio was, please provide information. Thank you guys!

    My name is Cesar Ascencio. It’s great to see different parts of the world with this unique last name.I’ve always felt to be very unique. I noticed some spell it Asensio,Asencio and like we do Ascencio wich is very rare. My family i0lls from Jalisco, Mexico ( Guadalajara ) and from a small town called Jesus Maria also in Jalisco Mexico. My parents migrated to Los Angeles around the early 1970’s. My grandparents names were Ana Guadalupe Ascencio and Don Refujio Ascencio. They had I believe 9 children. Flor,Pedro,Marco,Lucresia,Carlos,Sylvia,Miguel (my father) Cucavon and Mario. Mario and Sylvia unfortunately are not with us anymore. They past away but everyone else are still living. We’re a very tight and united big family. Always getting together for social events! Love my huge Mexican family. Very blessed! Hello to all my fellow Ascencios! Love you all mi familia! Proud last name!! Great site!

Yes this name is rare my father Angel Asencio from Cabo Rojo, PR was born and raised there and the farthest back I could go was 1818 which was my fathers uncle from Spain and his son Salvador Asencio which was a famous liberal 1842 to 1912 and in Cabo Rojo PR stands his statue in the Plaza of Cabo Rojo.

    My father Diego C. Asencio was born in Spain, came to Newark N.J. with his parents, married Nancy and became a US Ambassador. They had five children – I was the youngest, and many grand children. God bless the Asencio name.

  11. Marco Antonio Ascencio says:

    My mother’s family immigrated to El Salvador CA in the mid 1800’s from Mexico city, from Mexico I have trace it back to Spain and France where the Ascencio name originated. I now live in Vancouver Canada, have a son that hopefully will keep the Ascencio name going on.

  12. Jonathan Asencio says:

    Hello. Really I am happy. My complete name is Jonathan Eduardo Asencio Cortez. I live in Guatemala and all the family too. But as far as I know my family come from Spain since the origin. It’s good to find another person with the last name and the others too. Really thanks I hope we can still in contact. I want to know you all more and more. 🙂

  13. Diego Asencio says:

    My parents were born in Spain. I recall visiting Guadalajara and being well treated. I later discovered that the Governor’s name at the time was Asencio and they thought I was connected to the family.

    Best regards,

    Diego

    It is very nice to see that there is a site for such a regal name. My father was born in Ponce, P.R. and the farthest back that I can go is in the early 1820’s in the basque region of Spain where the name is known as “ajunju”. Looking for the definition of the name, I found that it means, “The man that lives below the blackberry bushes.” and not the common misconception of Ascension.
