From the Guidebook:

In 1835 Don Joaquin Moraga, with his cousin Don Juan Bernal, was awarded this grant which they called Rancho Laguna de los Palos Colorados - the adobe was completed in 1841. Don Joaquin was the grandson of Jose Joaquin Moraga, founder and first commandante of the Presidio of San Francisco.
