: Does anyone know the name of the Spanish ranchero that bordered San Francisco along its southern boundary? Just how large was the original land grant? It may have been called "Guadalupe" something.

Here you go:

"Canada de Guadalupe y Visitacion y Rodeo Viejo. Area 9,594.90 acres. Henry R. Payson, claimant for Canada de Guadalupe y Visitacion y Rodeo Viejo. Granted July 31, 1841 by Juan B. Alvarado to Jacob P. Leese. Claim filed March 2, 1853; confirmed by the commission January 30, 1855, and by the District Court on June 18, 1856; an appeal dismissed April 1, 1857."
