History of Stanislaus County
The county is named for the Stanislaus River, first discovered by a European, Gabriel Moraga, in 1806, and later renamed Rio Estanislao in honor of Estanislao, a mission-educated renegade Native American chief who led a band of Indians in a series of battles against Mexican troops until finally being defeated by General Mariano Vallejo in 1826. Estanislao was his baptismal name, the Spanish rendition of Stanislaus, itself the Latin rendition of the name of an 11th century Polish Catholic Saint Stanislaus the Martyr.
Between 1843 and 1846 when California was a province of independent Mexico, five Mexican land grants of a total of 113,135 acres (457.8 km), or over forty-four square miles were granted in Stanislaus County. Rancho Orestimba y Las Garzas, Rancho Pescadero and Rancho Del Puerto were located on the west side of the San Joaquin River. Rancho Del Rio Estanislao and Rancho Thompson were on the north side of the Stanislaus River. Additionally in 1844, Salomon Pico received a Mexican land grant of 58,000 acres (230 km) in the San Joaquin Valley, somewhere near the Stanislaus River and the San Joaquin River in what is now Stanislaus County. However the grant was never confirmed by the Land Commission.
Stanislaus County was formed from part of Tuolumne County in 1854.
There is a somewhat lively local debate as to the proper pronunciation of the name Stanislaus. Some residents pronounce it STAN-?s-läw, with no final S. This is no doubt influenced by the Spanish form Estanislao and further reinforced by the fact that the San Joaquin Valley was settled by immigrants from the southern states following the Civil War, and the southern dialect tends to soften all trailing consonants. Despite this, the silent final S has never been universal, and other ethnic and historical influences tend to argue against it. Several towns within Stanislaus and neighboring counties along the Stanislaus River, including Turlock, Valley Home, and Ripon, were founded and settled by immigrants from Dutch-, German-, and Danish-speaking regions where Stanislaus is a traditional men's given name (and like Estanislao, a variation of Stanley). The German-derived pronunciation, STAN-?s-l?ss, maintains the trailing S (and also puts a bit more emphasis on the second syllable). At any rate, unaware of the name's complex local history, most outsiders and new residents pronounce Stanislaus with the final S, which is arguably the more phonetically intuitive method, but both pronunciations are considered acceptable.Read More
