1864-1866: Joaquin and Julia Abrego de Bolado went to Europe with the Barons

“In 1864 Mr. William Baron invited my father and mother (Joaquin Bolado & Julia Abrego de Bolado) to be his guest on a trip to Europe. Chartering a vessel they went by way of Panama and Aspinwall (Colon), and crossed the Isthmus where another vessel was waiting to take them to Liverpool. The party consisted of all the Baron and Walkinshaw connections – twenty-four in all.

In London my parents left the Baron party and went on to France, Germany and then to Spain to see my father’s relatives, his father had died – but his dear little old mother lived to see her son once more.

They spent two years in Europe and on my father’s return he found that California had been indulging in a terrible drought, all his cattle dead, and he had to begin all over again.”

Her Mother:

Her mother was Josefa Maria Casilda Aniceta Estrada de Abrego, born 04-14-1814 in the Officers’ Family Quarters in the Presidio of Monterey.

“A native California lady named Señora Doña Josefa Estrada de Abrego, half-sister of Governor Alvarado, resided at Monterey in 1842 at the time Commodore Jones raised the American flag over that city. She was one of the most beautiful and intelligent of her sex. Like all her people, she felt deep chagrin that the fortunes of war should bring about a change which would compel her to submit to the new order of things.”
