Bilston
Bilston Creek and Farm are located in Metchosin, southwest of Victoria. The British Columbia Geographical Names Information System has a record for a Bilston Creek, which ran through Bilston Farm,1 a reference to which exists in an enclosure of this private correspondence.
In the enclosure, James Cooper writes to Douglas on the subject of the HBC's land lease arrangements on Bilston Farm & Thetis Cottage, a matter most pressing in light of Cooper's intentions to leave this country for England.
