  • After seventeen years of service in the Customs House in London, Burnaby came to British Columbia in 1858 with a letter of introduction from the Colonial Secretary, Sir Edw. Bulwer Lytton, and secured an appointment as private secretary to Colonel Moody
  • In this capacity he was closely associated with the survey that the Royal engineers were making of the land around New Westminster, and the lake, whose existence had been known previously, was named after him.
  • Burnaby left Moody's employ in August 1859 and joined Walter Moberly in a search Cor coal around Burrard Inlet.
