History

Phineas Banning was born in 1830 in Wilmington, Delaware, went to Philadelphia to work as a clerk in the law office of his brother William L. Banning, and came to California at the age of 21 as an assistant to a merchant. On arriving at San Pedro in 1852, he took a job with commission merchants Douglass & Sanford. Soon he became the partner of David W. Alexander in the freight and stage lines between San Pedro and Los Angeles. In 1858 Alexander became a silent partner and the firm was known as Banning & Co. After a short period of partnership with A. F. Hinchman, Banning took over sole leadership for the Banning Co.
In 1857 the Dominguez family sold Banning a large parcel of land at the head of the slough northeast of San Pedro. Banning started a settlement called New San Pedro, then in 1859 changed the name to Wilmington after his birthplace. He built a wharf, warehouses, and a lumber yard. He built lighters and steamboats and bought stages and wagons to carry passengers and freight from San Pedro to Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and even as far as Yuma and Salt Lake City.
In 1865 Banning was elected state senator and through his exertions railroads were encouraged in Southern California. Los Angeles voted the necessary bonds to build a railroad from Los Angeles to Wilmington. In time, the Southern Pacific Railroad purchased this Los Angeles and San Pedro Railroad and work began on improving the harbor. A suit was initiated to definitely settle the title to the tidelands which had been purchased by Phineas Banning. The litigation began in 1880 and continued until 1917 when the final settlements were made, generally in favor of the Banning family.
Phineas Banning passed away in 1885. The business was carried on by his three sons, William, Joseph Brent, and Hancock. The company purchased Santa Catalina Island, developed it as a resort and provided the ships for transportation. Wilmington Transportation Company, Santa Catalina Island Company, and Wilmington Development Company were subsidiary firms of the Banning Company. The company's real estate interests also grew and included land in Los Angeles, Pasadena, Newport Beach, as well as petroleum leases near Wilmington and Newport.
The final dissolution of the company came in 1920 at the time of the death of Joseph Brent Banning. After this period, business papers are in the names of William Banning or Hancock Banning individually.
