Surrey became incorporated in 1879, and encompasses land formerly occupied by a number of Halqemeylem-speaking aboriginal groups. When Englishman H.J. Brewer looked across the Fraser River from New Westminster and saw a land reminiscent of his native County of Surrey in England, the area reminded him not only of home but also sounded like "Surrey", so he suggested that the name be chosen for all this territory (which then included modern day Langley). In 1891, it became the sixth city in British Columbia to incorporate as "City" after Vancouver City (1886), Victoria City (1885), New Westminster(1873) , Nanaimo(1901) & Port Moody(1906).
