El Cajon derives its name from the Spanish word for ‘box’ and thus the city’s nickname is ‘The Box’ for the box-shaped valley in which the city is situated. Early maps in 1873 and 1875 shortened the name of the town to Cajon until the establishment of a Post Office at which time the official name became El Cajon.

Settlement of the territory that would later become California was encouraged by the Spanish government with large land grants called ranchos. Many of these ranchos were established for the benefit of the Roman Catholic Church to construct missions in the area. Later under Mexican rule these land grants were made to individuals. After passing through several owners. The Land Act of 1851 paved the way for Thomas W. Sutherland filed a claim for the land on behalf of the heirs of Don Miguel Pedrorena.
