Gregório Amúrrio was a Franciscan missionary in California during the late 1700s. He was one of the five original missionaries to Alta California, and the co-founder of Mission San Juan Capistrano.

When was he born and when did he die?

You know your researching a tough topic when the only thing that comes up is the question itself. :P – American Luke Dec 7 '12 at 21:35
Can you expand the question a little more to include why it is that you believe he is historically significant? Citing the wikipedia page isn't really sufficient imo. – ihtkwot Dec 7 '12 at 23:15

According to the Encyclopedia of Frontier Biography (p23), he was born at Bastida, Spain in 1744 and died post 1784.
