The development of this establishment is deeply tie to the one of Chiautempan; the events that in him follow one another as of the pre-Hispanic time maintain narrow relation with which they are pronounced in the señoríos of Chiautempan and Comalteapa.
Francisco Javier Muñoz, cronista of Santa Ana Chiautempan, aims that at the pre-Hispanic time the first settlers settled down themselves in the tip of the Malinche, and later happened to the montecito that is known like “chiche”, being transferred momentarily to the site where even is and the zone of the Club of Lions, to arrive finally, to the place that at the moment occupies San Francisco Tetlanohcan, where the districts of Xolalpan (on the center), Majtlacuahuajkan (place of encinos) and Aquiáhuac settled down (water that are above).
Nevertheless, taking care of the reference to Comalteapa, Chiautempan it could be present either from Texcalac behind schedule, agrees to consider that the existence of establishments in the area that at the moment occupies San Francisco Tetlanohcan, or could occur or between the years from the 900 to the 1100 d.c., establishments that from the evidences available, would be identified with stays, villages and microvillages.
The Colony. - Against this background, San Francisco Tetlanohcan, like Santa Ana Chiautempan, is in the administrative plane under the jurisdiction of Ocotelulco and comprises the doctrine of Chiautempan, one of the few that count at the beginning of the Colony with a franciscano convent, same that is constructed from 1569 to 1585, and that it lodges two friars - one of who is preaching; convent that is elevated as one of the manifestations to express the triumph of the Christianity on the pagan forms of adoration.
