Evelyn Station

Evelyn Station
Latitude- 54º 53' 32“ N, Longitude-127º 16' 10” W
Elevation- 1557 ft above sea level
1528.7 miles from Winnipeg
Originally thought named after Alfred Smither's daughter, but he didn't have a daughter Evelyn,
Then BC Gazeteer says it was named after one of William Pitman Litt Hinton's daughters,
who was Vice President and GM of the GTPR
Only problem, he only had one daughter, Kathlyn B. Hinton, and 2 sons, Arthur and Robert.
So now we are back to where did the name Evelyn come from?
Researching the First 2 Investors in the GTPR,
Speyer Bros. and N. M. Rothschild & Son, all Bankers in London, England.
I noticed one of the Rothschild Sons, involved with the Bank at that time,
was Evelyn Achille de Rothschild (B.A.)
b- Jan 6, 1886, London, England
d- Nov 17, 1917, Palestine, during WWI
He is now my guess where this name came from. He would have been well known by Mr. Smithers, and all the Directors in England.
Here we were looking for a female, but found a male named Evelyn?
