The land in and about the City of Sugar Land was originally owned by the Mexican government and was granted to Samuel M. Williams through Stephen F. Austin. There were several factors which governed Williams receiving this grant, among them was the fact that he spoke Spanish, was well educated, and wrote a fine Spencerian hand. Williams called this land "Oakland Plantation" because there were many different varieties of oaks on the land - Pin Oak, Post Oak, Water Oak, Red Oak, and Live Oak. During this period of time, land grants were measured from one oak to another.
