Council House Fight in San Antonio. 3-19-1840 Penateka Comanches, including 33 chiefs, meet with officials of the Texas government in San Antonio to negotiate a peace treaty. Believing the Comanches to have reneged on a promise to release all white prisoners, the Texans take the chiefs prisoner. During the Council House fight that followed, 35 Comanches and seven Texans are killed.
The beginning of the city of San Antonio as a civil settlement in the province of Tejas is generally recognized as the arrival of 16 families consisting of 55 immigrants from the Canary Islands.
The group marched overland to the presidio of San Antonio de Béxar, where they arrived at eleven o’clock on March 9, 1731 a full year after their departure from the Canary Islands.
Maria Rosa Padrón was the first baby born of Canary Islander descent in San Antonio.
