Looking north across Little Nugedzi Lake to Mount Seymour
Mount Seymour was named for Rear Admiral Sir George Francis Seymour (1787-1870), according to The Encyclopedia of Raincoast Place Names. Seymour was commander-in-chief of the Royal Navy's Pacific Station, 1844-48, then based at Valpariso, Chile. A small nearby lake just north of Mount Seymour is locally referred to as Seymour Lake. Seymour Narrows on Quadra's west coast is named after Seymour as well.
