Settlers from Britain arrived here in the 1870’s and produced farm crops for the Vancouver Island market. William Curran was one of the early settlers. The Burchells from England and the Hunters from the Shetland Islands arrived shortly after and between the two families they owned most of this tiny island. Preedy Hall, built by the Burchells, later burnt down but was rebuilt in 1930.
