This family came from the house of Híjar. In 1461 the town of Aliaga was transferred from the domain of the Sanjuanistas to the house of Híjar, in the person of Don Juan Fernández de Híjar. Since then he must have taken the surname Aliaga, as lords of this town. Ferdinand the Catholic gave them the title of Dukes of Aliaga. They achieved great preponderance in these lands: they had domicile in Mosqueruela and built sumptuous dwellings in Mirambel and Iglesuela. At the time of settling in Mirambel they owned up to 36 farmhouses in the municipalities of Mosqueruela, Cantavieja, Tronchón, La Cuba (Mas de Moragues) and Mirambel.
