Biographical history

John F. Fee is a former resident of Pudney Flats, and came to Lytton in 1999 to find any information he could about the past history of the Flats. His father, Charles Fee, was hired by a syndicate from Montreal in Feb. of 1927, to run the Pinehurst Park Fur Farms, Ltd.on Pudney Flats. He brought his wife, Dorothy (nee Brownridge) and their children, John, Betty and Barbara. John was about 7 yrs old at the time and the family stayed on the Flats until December, 1927. He remembers his father rebuilding the fox pens and repairing and adding an extension to the already existing log cabin. John and sister Barbara remember their time on the farm as a happy time. The only water was from a Spring near the house - life was not easy - no neighbours near - but still the children led a care-free life. The family were given notice to leave in December, because the bottom had dropped out of the fur market. From the farm, the Fees went to Langley, B.C. In 1965, John and his wife, Gita, and son, Tom paid a visit to the farm, but all the buildings and pens were gone, only the stone chimney still standing.
