Compiled from originals held at the General Land Office in Austin, Texas, this publication contains pioneer land records for Brazoria County. The Board of Land Commissions for Brazoria County began their work in January of 1838. Because the Republic of Texas allowed larger amounts of land than the Mexican Government, original settlers came into the office to obtain their increased amounts of land.

With over 700 records, each entry contains [** When Provided]:
  • Name of Claimant
  • Number of Acres Involved
  • Date of Claim
  • Date Issued **
  • Date of Arrival **
  • Marital Status **
  • Notes **

Examples

Wright, Franklin, 640 Acres, June 1837, Conditional Grant
Dupong Joseph, 369 Acres, Prior to 2 May 1835, Single, Has received one quarter of a league.
