The history of Surrey British Columbia

As mentioned in the first sentence, Surrey was incorporated in 1879 but in those days it had been occupied by the Semiahmoo and Kwantlen people for 600 years. Their food was supplied by the rivers, ocean and forests. They were rich in fish, tidal shellfish, bear, deer, elk and birds. Fruits and berries was also a plentiful sustenance.

Fir cedar and hemlock trees were abundant and untouched. This gave rise to logging which cleared the land. People started to settle there and Surrey came to be. To this day markers bearing the names of the settlers of those days are displayed along the city roads standing as the names of the streets of the new days.

It wasn't until September 1993 that Surrey was officially called a city.

Surrey consists of six town centers. They are North Surrey, Fleetwood, Newton, Cloverdale, Guildford and South Surrey.

The name Surrey was decided on by H.J Brewer. He looked from the side of Westminster across the Fraser River and it reminded him of the Surrey in his homeland, England. A part of the now named Whalley, which was named after Harry Whalley who owned a gas bar in the area, was used as a burial ground by one of the aboriginal clans back in the day. In 1937 the Patullo Bridge was erected.

Settlers came to Surrey mainly for purposes of setting up little shops, fishing, farming and oyster harvesting. During the 80's and 90's, Surrey experienced a growth spurt of epic proportions as new occupants took up residence in the area.

One of the first mills that was entirely electrically operated was raised by the King and Farris Lumber Company in 1909 close to Roebuck road, which is 132 Street and Burke Road which is known today as 76 Avenue. The logging in the area took place mostly between 72 Avenue north all the way to 88 Avenue. This area was basically the Green Timbers region. Newton's growth was encouraged by the BCER who helped to get 72 Avenue and 136 Street established as the town's centre. In 1914 Newton school was opened on this intersection but today it is a gas station. Since Lew Jack's General Store opened, it greatly helped in establishing this section of town.

Cloverdale: This area had a great climate, a lot of water from the wells and incredibly rich soil which drew the settlers as this was the perfect environment that filled all their needs. It was especially favorable for agricultural development. A community was formed in 1870. But it had already been surveyed in 1859. Right at the heart of Cloverdale, 176 Street and 56 Avenue formed the town centre. In 1874 Joseph Shannon arrived in Cloverdale and bought a segment of land from the royalty of those times. This segment was 640 acres big. His two brothers came along too and bought another 960 acres of land. They say that after being in the valley for a few days, the one brother, William, had an opportunity to write a letter but he had no idea as to its heading. He looked outside and noticed the wild clover growing in vast numbers and imagined calling the place Cover Valley. Not long after he had a trip to Victoria and with the rights to build a post office for the area, he christened it Clover Valley. Not long after the name Clover Valley was attached to the district a road was built that connected the area to the Nicomekl River. At this very intersection provisions were brought to the settlers and also the farmer's produce got exported from here. It was named Clover Valley Road. Joseph Shannon, the brother that settled first became a farmer and also got involve in with real estate. He looked forward to the money he would make when the anticipation of the Southern Railway actually got a stop at Clover Valley. This would happen en route between Bellingham and New Westminster. He promptly subdivided and sold parts of his land to those among the people who speculated that business would be booming around the train stop once the development was finished. Because of all the facilities that was already in place, it was obvious that Clover Valley had to have a station. It was first named Cloverdale by the railway engineers and the name stuck.
