Corpus Christi from its founding in 1839 was called "Kinney's Ranch'' or "Kinney's Rancho,'' after founder H.L. Kinney. Within three years, Kinney in letters was calling the place Corpus Christi, after the bay. But years before, in 1836, Peter Grayson laid out a city called Grayson on the present site of Corpus Christi. Grayson, the attorney general of the Republic of Texas in 1837, had the place surveyed for a townsite in 1838, just before he killed himself during a painful illness. Grayson was a town on paper only.
The oldest names in South Texas came long before there were any settlements or towns. They were the names for huge blocks of land, the early Spanish land grants. They were called the Rincon del Oso, Rincon de Corpus Christi, the Santa Gertrudis and De la Garza grants, the Casa Blanca and Agua Dulce grants, the La Parra, La Barreta, El Penascal, El Chiltipin, Palo Alto, Santa Petronila, San Diego de Abajo and San Diego de Arriba grants. The old Spanish names were here for 100 years or so before the people came who couldn't pronounce them.
