The City of Vancouver is named after George Vancouver, who explored the inner harbour of Burrard Inlet in 1792 and, as a result, gave various places in the area British names. The explorer and trader Simon Fraser and his entire crew were the first known people of European race to set foot on the site of the present-day city. In 1808, they travelled from the east down the Fraser River, perhaps as far as Point Grey.
