Description From Owner:
  • Ireland Creek - After De Courcy Ireland, son of a Vernon magistrate, who pre-empted land here in 1895.
  • Lumby - After Moses Lumby (1842-93). He came to British Columbia from England in 1862, mined in the Cariboo, farmed near Kamloops, carried mail up to the Big Bend gold camps, settled in Spallumcheen in 1870,
  • and became a justice of the peace and vice-president of the Shuswap and Okanagan Railway. In 1891 he became government agent at Vernon.
  • He has been described as 'a portly gentleman with a usually smiling face.' After his death White Valley was renamed Lumby in his honour.
  • Mabel Lake - According to A.G. Harvey, Charles E. Perry, a CPR survey engineer, named the lake in the 1870s after Mabel Hope Charles (b. 1860), the eldest child of William Charles, successively the HBC manager in Hope, Kamloops, and Victoria.
