Texians were Anglo-American residents of Texas when Texas was part of Mexico, and subsequently when it was a sovereign nation. [de la Teja (1997), p. 79.]


Several terms were used in the 19th century to denote residents of Texas, including Texasian, Texian, Texican, and Texonian. Texan became the standard term after 1850.

Many different immigrant groups came to Texas over the centuries. There was Spanish immigration in the 17th century, French in the 18th and massive German, Czech, Dutch, Swedish, Irish, Scots and Welsh immigration in the years leading up to Texas independence in the 19th. Thus, the word "Texian" is not specific to white immigrants or English-speaking immigrants that settled the land, yet Texian refers to anyone of any color and language not of local Tejano heritage. contradict

The Texian Army that was organized for the Texas Revolution for independence from Mexico in 1835-36 was a diverse group of men and women from many different nations and states. The Texian Army was made up of local native-born Tejano volunteers; United States volunteers from states such as Alabama, the Carolinas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Virginia; and people from nations like England, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and what is now the Czech Republic.
