Francisco de Bolanos

Post by Guest on Thu Sep 30, 2010 9:59 pm

The following year, Francisco de Bolanos sailed to the mouth of the river on the Gulf of California. One of his pilots, Domingo del Castillo, prepared a map of the Mexican coast. He charted three rivers at the head of the gulf and named them Brazo de laguna p., Rio de buena Guia p., and Brazo de Mira flores p.. The latter of these three is the longest.[23] Later references suggest that Brazo de Mira flores referred to what is now called the Gila River, and that Rio de buena Guia was his name for the Colorado. In spite of these records, the legend and mapmaking error showing an Island of California persisted for more than a century, especially among European cartographers.
Comparisons of 17th, 18th, and early 19th-century maps reveal a parade of names being applied to the Colorado and its tributaries, as well as a variety of courses, as cartographers learned or made up the geography of the region.[24] On a map by Nicholas Sanson (1650) the R. del Tecon and the R. de Coral share a common mouth on the gulf. A number of maps show the Gila River (sometimes just the lower, sometimes the whole) as the Rio Grande de las Apostoles. A 1763 map by Emanuel Bowen equates the Apostles with the del Coral. A 1720 map by Fer Nicholas labels the main body of the Colorado as Rio del Tison, and a tributary of the Apostles/Gila as Rio Colorade
