San Francisco was originally named Yerba Buean "Good Herb". The Bay was called San Francisco Bay (1769) to honor the Franciscan Fathers who traveled north from Mexico to establish a string of Missions in California. The Pueblo of San Francisco is established in 1833.

Good luck in your research.

i have recently devleoped a way of telling if someone is funny by three sentences they have written. so, what im wondering is, am i funny? by the way, my name doesnt count.cos this really is my name. dont worry, im not thinking about a lawsuit. im thinking about cheese. yes, so id really preciate it if one or many people came up with some sort of funny test. i anticipate questions to which humourus or unhumourus aswers must be given. and u lot remind me of rhebus monkeys.
