The 6 ‘town centers’ which comprise the ‘City of Surrey’ include Whalley/City Center, Fleetwood, South Surrey, Cloverdale, Newton, and Guildford.
The incorporation of Surrey took place in the year 1879. It goes on to encompass the land which was previously occupied by loads of Coast Salish-speaking aborigines. When H J Brewer, an Englishman went on to look across Fraser river; that too, from ‘Westminster’; he noticed a piece of land reminiscent of Surrey County, i.e. his native place (in England). This led to formation of Surrey in Canada.
