Description From Owner:
  • Abbotsford - J.C. Maclure, who chose the original townsite, is sometimes said to have named the town after Abbotsford, the baronial mansion that Sir Walter Scott built with the profits from his novels.
  • In a letter of 1924, however, Maclure declared that, when the town was laid out in 1889, he named it after Harry Abbott, general superintendent of the Pacific Division of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
  • Abbott, in his day a great man in the province, was a brother of Sir John Abbott, Prime Minister of Canada in 1891-2.
  • Peardonville - Named in 1894 after Richard Peardon, a local farmer who became the first postmaster.
  • …from G.P.V. Akrigg and Helen B. Akrigg British Columbia Place Names 3rd Edition 1997
