Before the Mission, it had been the village of Echilat

"Fructuoso de Jesus Cholom-Real grew up to serve as mission alcalde. With his wife, Yginia Maria Yunisyunis, he received one square parcel of land during secularization in 1835, called El Potrero de San Carlos. He lived on this land until his death in 1845. The land had been Carmel Mission's pasture, but before the mission, it had been the village of Echilat."
