Description From Owner:
  • Mount Crickmer named in 1859 after the Reverend W. Burton Crickmer, the Anglican clergyman at Fort Langley. His diary is in the Vancouver City Archives.
  • For almost a century, all memory of the naming of this mountain seemed lost. Only in 1957 was it identified from a sketch in the diary and, no new name having become attached to it in the interim, the old name was restored.
  • Hayward Lake - After R.F. Hayward, general manager of the Western Canada Power Co., who had much to do with planning the dams and power plants at Ruskin and Stave Falls.
  • Mount Judge Howay - Named after Frederic William Howay (1867-1943), county court judge at New Westminster, a leading BC historian, and president of the Royal Society of Canada 1941-2.
  • The Howay and Scholefield British Columbia from the Earliest Times to the Present is a major work in its area. At his death Judge Howay left his books to UBC.
  • Here they were joined a few years later by those of his fellow student at Dalhousie Law School, lifelong friend and fellow enthusiast for BC history, Robie Reid.
  • The books now constitute the Howay-Reid collection at UBC, a source that has been of major help in compiling this book.
  • Stave River - Also STAVE LAKE. The HBC had a cooperage at Fort Langley, where the first barrels in British Columbia were made.
  • The staves for them were cut on the banks of this river. An earlier name was Work's River. The Indians knew the river as s' Hai-uks or Skeeacks.
  • Whonnock - From the Halkomelem word meaning 'place where there are [always] humpback salmon.'
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
