Interesting Terrace coincidence

Tourist from Surrey discovers road sign in Terrace, B.C. coincidentally containing two of his family names.

Dear Sir:

Just wanted to let you know that we passed through Terrace a few months ago on our way up to Alaska.

While there, I knew you had a street called Lanfear so we looked it up.

It is a very rare name in Canada. Yours was an 1890s resident though, no relation.

We took a few pictures at a corner which amazingly was at the junction of Thomas street, Thomas being my mother’s maiden name!

An amazing coincidence I thought you might find interesting.

Probably the only corner in the world that shares these two names with me.

Nick Lanfear.

Surrey, B.C.

Editor’s note: Lanfear Street and Lanfear Hill take their names from  Danina Lanfear who with Ethelwyn French ran a farm on top of Lanfear Hill in the early part of the 20th century. Both were from Great Britian.
