1st Vice Regent:
2nd Vice Regent:
The Monserate Chapter was organized on April 15, 1972. Evelyn Perrine Van Ness was the chapter's first regent.
MONSERATE…Where did it get its name?
Monserate Chapter took its name from the 13,000-acre Mexican Land Grant of
1846, known as Rancho Monserate, upon which Fallbrook is now located, and which
received its name from the very rocky Monserate Mountain. It was a Spanish
soldier, in 1795, on the expedition of Padre Juan Mariner, searching for new
mission sites, who named that mountain as it reminded him of Montserrat, a
craggy mountain in his native province
Most members are from the Fallbrook area; however, some members are from other areas as well. Local residency is not a requirement for membership in any chapter.
The Monserate Chapter meets on the third Thursday, October through May. If you would like to attend one of our meetings, please contact us.
We welcome any woman for membership who is over 18 years of age and who is descended from a man or woman who aided in achieving American Independence during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783. Information on membership in the DAR can be found here.
