XIMENEZ, Francisco (hee-may'-nayth), Spanish missionary, born in Estremadura in the latter half of the 15th century; died in Mexico, 31 July, 1537. He studied in the University of Salamanca, where he was graduated in theology, and entered the Franciscan order in the convent of San Gabriel in Estremadura. He was one of the twelve missionaries that accompanied Fray Martin de Valencia in 1523 to Mexico, and became thoroughly acquainted with the Mexican language, in which he was the first to write a grammar and a catechism. He was a successful missionary among the natives and founder of the convent of Quaunahac (now Cuernavaca), of which he became superior. He wrote a life of Fray Martin de Valencia and "Arte y Vocabulario en lengua Mexicana," which is still in manuscript.
