Description From Owner:
  • After Francis William Caulfeild, a most attractive English gentleman in the old tradition.
  • In 1899, won by the beauty of the wild flowers, woods, and beaches of the area, he bought the land between Cypress Creek and Point Atkinson. Himself a lover of beautiful English villages, he sought to create one here.
  • Rejecting the uncompromising grid universally imposed on North American settlements, he laid out winding streets that followed the natural contours of the wooded slopes.
  • He made a public park out of the strip of land on the waterfront. Caulfeild died in 1934, aged ninety.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
