Yes, it was founded by Michel Branamour Menard.

ion of Independence from Mexico.

Menard founded the city of Galveston, Texas after a series of events between 1833 and 1838. In 1833, Menard represented Juan Seguin, securing for him a Mexican headright, amounting to about 6,640 acres of land at the east end of Galveston Island. On October 3, 1836, after Texas Independence, Menard sold the land to Thomas F. McKinney on behalf of Seguin. Then, in order to settle the legality of Seguin's original ownership of the land, Menard led a group of ten men[4] who were petitioning the Texas Government to recognize the 1833 conveyance of the Galveston Island land from Mexico to Seguin. On December 9, 1836, the Republic of Texas agreed to confirm the conveyance in exchange for $50,000 in cash or merchandise. The next day, McKinney sold the land to Menard. David White acted as an agent to receive payments from Menard on behalf of the Republic of Texas. White claimed that Menard made the payments, but it is not clear about the form of the payments and how much, if any, was forwarded to the Republic of Texas.[3]

Michel Branamour Menard was born on December 5, 1804 at Saint-Philippe, Quebec, Canada to Michel B. and Marguerite Desnoyers Ménard.[1] He was already working at a young age as an engagé, working through the Detroit post of the American Fur Trading Company. He spent most of two years conducting business in Minnesota. An uncle, Pierre Menard, recruited him to trade furs at Kaskaskia starting in 1822.[2] The young Menard received a francophone education. Later he learned English, but spoke with his native French accent throughout his life.[3] Still working for his uncle, he moved to the Ste. Genevieve area, where he traded and lived with a local band of Shawnee. He followed the Shawnee south to the White River, and in 1828, crossed with them into Mexican Texas along the Red River.[2]
