Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Rancho Pescadero (also called "Punta del Cipreses") was a 4,426-acre (17.91 km2) Mexican land grant in present day Monterey County, California given in 1836 by Governor Nicolás Gutiérrezto Fabián Barreto. Pescadero means fishing place in Spanish. The grant extended along the Pacific coast from Rancho Punta de Pinos and Seal Rocks south to Carmel by the Sea and encompassed present day Pebble Beach, California. abián Barreto, a Mexican who came to Monterey in 1827 married María del Carmen Garcia Barreto Madariaga in 1833. Barreto received the one square league grant in 1836, but died shortly there after. His widow, Maria married Juan Madariaga in 1844. In 1846 Maria Madariaga sold Rancho Pescadero to John Romie. John Frederick Romie and his wife, Maria A. Frohn (1801-1886), came from Hamburg, Germany to Mexico in 1835. In 1841 they came to Monterey where Romie operated a tailoring business. After the discovery of gold, Romie went to the mines, and died at Placerville in 1850. His widow sold Rancho Pescadero to John C. Gore in 1852.
