Texas Land Grants
Did your ancestor ever receive a Land grant from the Spanish Government or the State of Tamaulipas? If your answer is yes it is very likely that you will find it on the website for the Texas General Land Office.
What the Texas General Land Office has to Offer
The Texas land grant database contains over 4,200 land titles issued by Spain and Mexico from 1720 to 1836 covering 26 million acres. It also offers other collections for a total of 656,129 records.
You can get a full description of it or start searching for your ancestors at the land grant search.
This is an example of one of the results for one of my wife’s ancestors:
|District/Class:||San Patricio 1st|
|Original Grantee:||Flores, Segundo|
|Patent Date:||13 Aug 1881|
I hope that you find this resource useful and helpful in your research. Let me know about your finds.

I am glad I was able to help you. FYI, The Texas Land Grant Office publishes a book with all this information and more titled “New guide to Spanish and Mexican land grants in south Texas”.
