approximately 28,000 acres by the Mexican government
for his service in the Mexican army as a lieutenant
of the militia at the pueblo of San Jose. This
land covers what are today the cities of San Leandro,
Hayward and Castro Valley. The area of Castro
Valley was used as pasture land for Don Castro’s

middle part of the 19th century. Don Castro later
lost all of his land to his loosing habit of gambling
and ended up selling it to pay his debts and then
moving to Chile with most of his family around
1864. Some of that land was sold for its redwood
