Based on incidents described in a log of an old sailor named Captain Alexander Wybrow, W.G.H. Ellison fashioned a story about four youths in Port Renfrew in the 1890s entitled The Settlers of Vancouver Island.

Born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1857, William George Hollingworth Ellison was a clergyman ordained in 1883 who came to British Columbia in 1889. He wrote for the Victoria Colonist and retired to live near Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island.
