Razor Resources - Fun Facts

Did You Know?

Many parts of Texas where uninhabited as such there was so much land in Texas, the Spanish Crown started to issue land grants to attract settlers and to encourage colonization prior to the Mexican Independence of 1821. The Spanish decided to grant large tracts of land to the early settlers. A colonist who was a married man was entitled to a league (1 league of land = 4,428 acres) of land; a colonist who was unmarried was entitled 1/3 of a league of land.

The Mexican government continued this practice and granted the land to individuals and the area of land would take the name of the GRANTEE.

After the Independence of Texas in 1836, the Republic of Texas granted land referred to as surveys rather than Spanish tradition, using leagues. Surveys are also named after the grantee.
