Boyle Heights was called Paredón Blanco ("White Bluff") when Alta California was part of the First Mexican Republic.[2] The area is named after Andrew Boyle, an Irishman born in Ballinrobe Co.Mayo in 1818 who purchased 22 acres (8.9 ha) on the bluffs overlooking the Los Angeles River after fighting in the Mexican–American War.[3]
