Ranking[edit]

What in the world is the OMB designation? Iheartwiki19 08:03, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Office of Management and Budget, i believe. Also removed "the first California city on the list" because a simple look at the CNN link shows several California cities on the list. 128.200.236.138 19:38, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
"first California city on the list" means it ranks higher than any other city in CA, not that no other CA city has been on the list or is on the list. Iheartwiki19 03:14, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
Agreed. However, Mill Valley, CA happens to be higher than Yorba Linda at the #10 spot. Adjusted accordingly.JeebusSez 08:30, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Yorba Linda History[edit]

Don José Antonio Yorba I, 1746-1825, was a settler of Spanish California, then known as the California territory of New Spain. Born in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia in Catalonia, Spain, Yorba came to the California territory as a Spanish Army officer with the Gaspar de Portolà Expedition of 1769. For his military service, Yorba was awarded a land grant of 15 Spanish Leagues from King Carlos III of Spain, in 1784, that comprised a significant portion of today's Orange County, California.

Yorba's original rancho, which he named “Rancho San Antonio”, included the lands where the cities of Olive, Orange, Villa Park, Santa Ana, Tustin, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, Placentia, Irvine and Santiago stand today.

Among José Antonio's children, Don Bernardo Yorba I (1801-1858) accumulated additional territories for the family's massive cattle herd business, which produced cowhides for leather goods and tallow for soap and candles, that were traded with New England merchants who sailed around the horn from Boston to California's sea ports.

Don Bernardo introduced irrigation agriculture, utilizing the Santa Ana River near his home, the Rancho San Antonio adobe, which was amongst the largest in Alta California.

Juan Pablo Grijalva was granted land through marrage into the Yorba family. In 1809, he established "Rancho Arroyo de Santiago"

Throughout the early 1800's, the integrated peoples of Alta California, known as "Californios", lived a pastorial life, and enjoyed the benefits of a thriving economy.

During the outset of the the Mexican-American war, several defensive battles in 1846 and '47 were fought and Alta California was ultimatly ceeded to the United States in 1847 by signing the Treaty of Cahuenga. Of the land grants established by Spain, and confirmed by the Mexican government after 1823, the Yorba rancho lands were amongst the few to be preserved intact, due, in part, by marriages to American immigrants.

One of Don Bernardo’s daughters, Ramona, married Benjamin Davis Wilson, an American trapper from Tennessee, who came to the territory to hunt grizzly bear in the area now called "Big Bear" in the San Bernadeno Forrest. Wilson, who is the grandfather of General George S. Patton Jr, began working as a vaquero, and recieved as a wedding dowry, the Rancho Jurupa from Don Bernardo, which would become the communities of today’s Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Wilson was prominant in the development of the new US State of California, eventually helped in the settling of the towns of Pasadena, San Gabriel and San Marino in Los Angeles County.

Throughout this American and Mormon migration period, descendents of the Yorba's continued to marry into other Spanish families, including the Grijalva, Perralta, and Dominquez's, who also married and granted lands to Americans to attempt preservation of their posessions. Many of today's recognizable American names in California, including the Kraemers, Glassels, Chapmans and Irvine's, married into these Spanish Californian families. In the early twentieth century, Samuel Kraemer, who had married Angelina, a direct Yorba decendent, tore down the historic Rancho San Antonio, after the new city of Yorba Linda refused to accept it or preserve it.

LA Portal[edit]

Improve[edit]

Why has this article been tagged: "This article needs additional citations for verification." It has a ton. What are some examples of unsourced materials? I want to remove the tag.Vercillo (talk) 11:00, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

I didn't tag it, but while scanning the article, I noticed a few areas that could use references. It is pretty easy to see where they are needed. The top tag probably could be removed. Sbmeirow (talk) 13:45, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
Some other things that need to be cleaned up:
- sort people in Notable Natives section by last name, A (top) to Z (bottom). Maybe shorten text on some people.
- reduce height of schools, especially list elementary schools in multiple columns, or some other method to shrink the height of this section.
- move photos around to prevent pushing text down and creating extra white space. possible move photos to other places in article. thin out some photos?

Meaning?[edit]

What does Yorba Linda mean? I can't find 'yorba' in the dictionary.Caeruleancentaur (talk) 21:15, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Criteria for notable residents and former residents[edit]

Added criteria for notable residents and former residents, based on similar criteria for Placentia's residents. (As of yet, have not removed any members from this list of notable residents based on the criteria.)

Proposed criteria:

  • Only people who already have a Wikipedia article may appear here. This establishes notability.
  • The article must mention how they are associated with the community, whether born, raised, or residing.
  • The fact of their association should have a reliable source cited.
