Description From Owner:
  • Mad River - The Reverend George Grant described it in 1872 as 'a violent mountain affluent.'
  • Reg Christie Creek - After Harold Reginald Monro Christie, BCLS, killed in action in 1916.
  • Vavenby - When a post office was established here in 1910, an early settler, Daubney Pridgeon, suggested that it be named after his birthplace, Navenby in Lincolnshire.
  • Unfortunately the postal authorities misread his handwriting, and so it became 'Vavenby.'
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
