Dates of existence


Hugh McRoberts (1814-1883), a native of Belfast, was the first white settler of Sea Island. He purchased a farm there in ca.1861 after working on the Cariboo Road and pursuing careers in California and Australia. He later sold his farm and moved to New Westminster, where he established a dairy business. His daughter, Jennie (1841-1931), born in Australia, joined him at Yale in 1860 and moved with him to the Sea Island farm. In 1864 she married a Victoria City Councilman, Charles Edward Bunting (1828-1890), a native of Saint John, New Brunswick.
