1834-12-18: Francisco del Castillo Negrete adds Santa Ana to claim

December 18, 1834, Negrete presented to the political chief of California his petition for Santa Ana. A decree of concession was duly signed by Governor Castro.

The court later found that after this date, “no other further proceedings were had upon said petitions except as hereinafter mentioned in favor of said Negrete, nor was juridicial possession of either of said tracts ever given to either of these, nor were the boundaries of either of said tracts established by any competent authority under the Mexican law, nor were they occupied.

The Negrete (sic) abandoned their claims and the lands were subsequently denounced by Juan Miguel Anzar and Manuel Larios.”

Abstract, v2 p. 248
