Houston First-class Headrights in Trinity County 1836-1845

 

Headrights, Republic of Texas (source: Categories of Land Grants in Texas, General Land Office)

In order to build a tax base and encourage settlement in the new Republic of Texas, immigrants were granted land by the government.  The amount of acreage issued was based on the time period in which an immigrant arrived in Texas.

First-class headrights (Houston 1) were issued to those who arrived before the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836.  Heads of families were eligible for one league and one labor of land (4605.5 acres) and single men were eligible for 1/3 of a league (1476.1 acres).

Second-class headrights (Houston 2nd) were issued to those who arrived between March 2, 1836 and October 1, 1837.  Heads of families were eligible for 1280 acres and single men were eligible for 320 acres.

Third-class headrights (Houston 3rd) were issued to arrived between October 1, 1837 and January 1840.  Heads of families were eligible for 640 acres and single men were eligible for 320 acres.

Fourth-class headrights were issued to those who arrived between January 1, 1840 and January 1, 1842.  The amounts issued were the same as for a third class headright with the added requirement that ten acres be cultivated. [No 4th Class Headrights found in Trinity County]
