About William Stenner, Capt.

Born in 1807[1] Scotland, United Kingdom, William Stenner married 'three times: Maria Marta Yberra; Maria Andrea Duarte; Guadulupe Quinteros, and fathered fourteen children. Guadalupe's family stems from many of the original families that came to Alta California before 1800. Her maternal lineage takes her to the Feliz family that traveled with De Anza from Mexico to California in 1776.

William Stenner worked as a hide house manager in San Diego before becoming captain of the Primevera, sailing the coast of California between San Francisco and San Diego, for ten years before settling down with his third wife, Guadalupe Quinteros, in San Luis Obispo. In 1852 he became the first Harbor Master for Avila, California, a small fishing town in San Luis Obispo County. William Stenner died 29 December 1885 at San Luis Obispo County, California, and is buried at Old Mission Cemetery, San Luis Obispo, San Luis Obispo County, California, United States.
