Harewood Railway Company
The Harewood Coal Mining Company created the railway company to propose a railway that ran from Departure Bay, Nanaimo and connected to the Harewood Coal fields in Mountain District, Vancouver Island.1 The directors of the railway company were J. J. Southgate and Sebright Green. On 10 June 1864, they requested the consent of the Governor to take land in the “Government Reserve” in the Nanaimo District to build their railway. The council agreed to this motion. The lands on which the Harewood Railway ran were on unceded Snuneymuxw territory.2
