Description From Owner:
  • The land along this creek was originally pre-empted in 1863 by Colonel Charles F. Houghton of the 20th Regiment of Foot. (Trutch's map of 1871 shows 'Houghton's Coldstream.')
  • In 1869 the land passed to the Vernon brothers, and in 1891 Forbes George Vernon sold the estate to Lord Aberdeen, who planted here the first orchards in the Okanagan.
  • G.M. Dawson, a visitor in 1877, reported that on 8 July of that year he found the temperature of the spring water at the head of Coldstream Creek to be 48.5 0 F.
  • Cosens Bay - after Cornelius Cosens (1837-1930), a pioneer settler who sold his property in the area to the Earl of Aberdeen.
  • Haddo Lake - After George, Lord Haddo, eldest son of the seventh Earl (and first Marquess) of Aberdeen.
  • Lavington - After Lavington Park, the Sussex home of James Buchanan, the wealthy Scottish distiller who bought land here in the early 1900s. In 1921 he bought the Coldstream Ranch.
  • He twice won the Derby, gave King George V the money to restore the nave of the Chapel Royal at Windsor, donated very generously to charities, and in 1922 was created Baron Woolavington of Lavington.
