When the local post office was established just north of Vancouver Lake in 1890, the name Powley was submitted to honor a local resident, F. Powley, who had donated land for the school. The post office denied that name and suggested “Polly”. C.C. Lewis, the postmaster, responded that the name sounded like a parrot, they might as well name it for his cat! He submitted Thomas, his cat’s name, as well as Tomcat, and Felidae, Latin, for the big cats. The post office thought that Felida was a fine name.
