Compton's earliest settlers were faced with terrible hardships as they farmed the land in bleak weather to get by with just the barest subsistence.The weather continued to be harsh, rainy and cold, and fuel was difficult to find.Originally named Gibsonville, after one of the tract owners, it was later called Comptonville.However, to avoid confusion with the Comptonville located in Yuba County, the name was shortened to Compton.The rancho was subdivided and parcels were sold within the Californios of Alta California until the lands were ceded after the Mexican-American war in 1848.American immigrants acquired most of the rancho lands after 1848.The eastern side of the city was predominately white until the 1970s.
These families had traveled by wagon train south from Stockton, California, in search of ways to earn a living other than the rapid exhaustion of gold fields.A series of town meetings were held to discuss incorporation of their little town. Compton donated his land to incorporate and create the city of Compton in 1889, but he did stipulate that a certain acreage be zoned solely for agriculture and named Richland Farms.In January 1888, a petition supporting the incorporation of Compton was forwarded to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, who in turn forwarded the petition to the State Legislature.
