No artifact survives of the Domingo or Vicente ranches, but their names survive in Berkeley street names (Vicente, Domingo, and Peralta).
However, legal title to all land in the City of Berkeley remains based on the original Peralta land grant. sovereignty after the Mexican–American War, and especially, the Gold Rush, saw the Peraltas' lands quickly encroached on by squatters and diminished by dubious legal proceedings.
It borders the cities of Oakland and Emeryville to the south and the city of Albany and the unincorporated community of Kensington to the north.
Its eastern border with Contra Costa County generally follows the ridge of the Berkeley Hills. Berkeley is home to the oldest campus in the University of California system, the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, which is managed and operated by the University.
The Peraltas' Rancho San Antonio continued after Alta California passed from Spanish to Mexican sovereignty after the Mexican War of Independence. The lands of the brothers Domingo and Vicente were quickly reduced to reservations close to their respective ranch homes.
The rest of the land was surveyed and parceled out to various American claimants (See Kellersberger's Map).
To this end, they laid out a plat and street grid that became the basis of Berkeley's modern street plan.
Their plans fell far short of their desires, and they began a collaboration with the State of California that culminated in 1868 with the creation of the public University of California.
On March 25, 1853, Alameda County was created from a division of Contra Costa County, as well as from a small portion of Santa Clara County.
A horsecar ran from Temescal in Oakland to the university campus along what is now Telegraph Avenue. By the 1870s, the Transcontinental Railroad reached its terminus in Oakland.
In 1876, a branch line of the Central Pacific Railroad, the Berkeley Branch Railroad, was laid from a junction with the mainline called Shellmound (now a part of Emeryville) into what is now downtown Berkeley.
Eventually, Peralta gave portions of the ranch to each of his four sons.
What is now Berkeley lies mostly in the portion that went to Peralta's son Domingo, with a little in the portion that went to another son, Vicente.
