Description From Owner:
  • Enos Lake - After John Enos, the name adopted by a Portuguese who pre-empted here in 1864. Captain Walbran has a story that, when the Indians began to harass Enos, he flitted around them, dressed in white, playing a ghost in the night,
  • and so scared them away.
  • Richard Point - After Richard P. Wallis, a native of Cambridgeshire, who came to British Columbia in 1888 and purchased over 2,000 acres here in 1897.
  • Wallis Point - After Richard P. Wallis of Thorney Abbey, Cambridgeshire, who settled here in 1888, acquiring an estate of over 2,000 acres.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
