Dates of existence


Fitzgerald McCleery and his brother, Samuel, came to B.C. to join their uncle, Hugh McRoberts, who in 1862 transferred 160 acres of land on the north side of the north arm of the Fraser River (District Lot 315) to Fitzgerald. Samuel McCleery also bought property in the area (District Lot 316). The McCleerys were the first settlers in the area that eventually became the City of Vancouver.
