Vallejo, California: History Main article: History of Vallejo, California and Timeline of Vallejo history See also: List of mayors in the San Francisco Bay Area and List of people from Solano County, CaliforniaThe first known inhabitants were the Ohlone people. Evidence indicates that they lived in the region for more than 5,000 years. At the time of European contact (1769), Native Americans had already been there for thousands of years. The name "Vallejo" is derived from either Spanish va' luego ("soon") or Latin vallus ("valley"), which means "a small valley." Some historians hold that it was named for Juan Bautista Alvarado y Contreras (Governor 1796–1802). Others believe it was named by early Spanish explorers after a local tribe called Uliwa who lived in a large valley on Mission Creek but were driven out by mission establishment; however this may be folk etymology as there is no record to support this theory at all..
