Description From Owner:
  • After Chartres Brew (1815-70), Crimean War veteran and inspector of constabulary, Cork, Ireland, who was appointed in 1858 first inspector of police for the infant colony of British Columbia.
  • A year later he was appointed Chief Gold Commissioner. He ended up a county court judge at Barkerville. The epitaph, said to have been written by Judge Begbie, on Brew's grave in the Barkerville cemetery reads:
  • 'A man imperturbable in courage and temper, endowed with a great and varied administrative capacity, a most ready wit, and most pure integrity and a most human heart.'
  • Cunningham Creek - after William Cunningham, from Kentucky, who found gold on this creek during the Cariboo rush.
