The team was named after the age of the actual 49'ers, citizens of the USA who flocked out West in the years surrounding 1849 to prospect for gold. The transient homesteaders were often referred to as 49'ers and helped build the West. As they came and stayed, railroads were built, cities went up and the West became the new frontier.
In 1849 there was a gold strike in Calif. and masses of Easterners flock to Calif. to prospect for Gold hence the 49ers.
