Directory de Anza

compiled by Julia Christy

"The fame of Anza’s achievement [of  his earlier expedition] spread throughout New Spain. He received the plaudits of his countrymen and was honored by his king. Promoted to the rank of lieutenant-colonel, he was authorized to raise and equip a company of thirty soldiers for the establishment of a strong presidio and mission on the bay of San Francisco. Of the company, ten were to be experienced men from the Sonora presidios and twenty were to be new recruits. All must be married men with families and at the end of their ten year enlistment were to be given land and turned into settlers. In addition to the soldiers and their families, there were to be a certain number of families of settlers." - Zoeth Skinner Eldredge, 1912.
Various genealogical and historical sources state difference ages for the members of Anza's expedition. Below is a table comparing the information from some of these sources.
