  • Zadock Woods (1773 - 1842)

A collection of the earliest Colonists to settle in Texas while it was under the authority of Mexico. This happened during the 1820's & about 300 individuals/ families migrated to Texas.

The name "Old Three Hundred" refers to the settlers who received land grants in Stephen F. Austin's first colony in Mexico. Austin traveled to New Orleans to seek colonists. By Summer 1824 most of the Old Three Hundred were in settled in Texas. Each farming family received one labor (about 177 acres) and each ranching family one league (about 4,428 acres). Between 1824 and 1828, Commissioners Baron de Bastrop and Gaspar Flores issued 297 recognized titles, not 300. Most of Austin's Old Three Hundred were farmers from the South, and many had substantial means before they arrived. Austin accepted those from higher social classes, who were educated.
