Summary Ernest de Massey was the younger son of a well-to-do French family that sailed to America and the Gold Rush in the spring of 1849. He eventually settled in San Francisco, where he lived until his return to Europe in 1857. A Frenchman in the gold rush (1927) is a translation of de Massey's journal covering his voyage to California, gold mining on the Trinity River, 1850, and visits to San José, Santa Cruz, and San Juan Bautista; and his career as a San Francisco businessman and journalist, 1850-1851.
