Rancho Saucito

Rancho Saucito was a 2,212-acre (8.95 km2) Mexican land grant in present day Monterey County, California given in 1833 by Governor José Figueroa to Graciano Manjares.[1] The grant was located east of Monterey and the present day Monterey Regional Airport, and is bordered on the east by Rancho Laguna Seca.[2]


Graciano Manjares (1801-) married Maximiana Gongora and they had five children: Domingo (1829-), Jose (1830-), Ponciano (1831-), Estanislao (1832-), and Juana (1835-).[3] Manjares was granted the one league by half league Rancho Saucito in 1833.

With the cession of California to the United States following the Mexican-American War, the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo provided that the land grants would be honored. As required by the Land Act of 1851, a claim for Rancho Saucito was filed with the Public Land Commission in 1852,[4] and the grant was patented to John Wilson, Josiah H. Swain, and George C. Harris in 1862.[5]
