Bookmark and Share

Below is a list of 1868 residents of Yale, B.C., “nearly all the principal people of Yale”, from a document sent to Victoria to the Hon. P. O’Reilly and the Hon. Mr. F. J. Barnard, Yale representatives, supporting retention of New Westminster as the Capital of British Columbia. “Two or three prominent gentlemen” did not sign; it was said that they were absent at the time.

Extracted from an article in the British Columbian newspaper, Wednesday, 8 April 1868, page 1. Names here alphabetically.

We, the undersigned inhabitants of Yale, hereby express our wish that on the question of Capital, you will record your votes in favor of its retention at New Westminster:-
