Fleetwood Real Estate & Homes For Sale
One of the town centres of modern-day Surrey, British Columbia, Fleetwood is a beautiful town with lots to see and do. The town was developed in the early 1900s. Fishing, farming and logging were the main trades of the time. The first settlers to the town were from Vancouver and New Westminster.
The town gets its name from one of the earliest settlers, Edith Francis, who settled here in 1909, with her husband, James Francis. Edith’s extended family, whose last name was Fleetwood, joined her here, and soon, a large part of the town was populated by the Fleetwood clan. But what solidified the name of the town was the death of Edith’s brother, Arthur Thomas Fleetwood, in World War I. A government charter was obtained to name the town after her brother, and Fleetwood town came into existence. Even today, you can see a statue of the war hero standing across the way from the Fleetwood Community Centre.
Over the course of the next few decades, there was an in-pouring of people into Fleetwood. The increase in population also brought in economic opportunities and development. Today, Fleetwood is one of the most ethnically diverse regions of Surrey, and it has a population of 62,735. The median household income in Fleetwood stands at $97,637, which is better than Surrey’s average
