George is also credited with planting many of the maple trees along the streets of Chatham which is today known as "The City of Maples".
George wanted to be a land owner and was aware that the west coast was opening up and large tracks of land could be had for a small cost and the improving of the land. He convinced his wife that he and his two sons should go west. They boarded a train to San Francisco and then took a boat to Vancouver Island. They found work on the main land and eventual found that some pre-emptable tracks were available inside Howe Sound. George built a thirt-foo, double-ended, flat-bottom sloop - christened "Swamp Angel" and loaded his sons and their belongings on and sailed off. They eventually landed at what was to become Gibson's Landing. Finding that they could sustain their families, on May 24th 1886, George laid claim to DL 686 while hissonsclaimedDL685 and Pasley Island.
Charlotte and his younger daughters rode the newly completed Canadian Pacific Railway to Vancouver and the tug Etta White towed their belongings up to Howe Sound. George's older daughters came with their husbands later and also claimed tracks in the area.
