The brother of pioneer surveyor Walter Moberly, the lesser-known Henry John Moberly lived as a trapper in a cabin from 1865 to 1868 at Moberly Lake, a lake and townsite named after him, located 20 kilometres north of Chetwynd. His memoirs of the Peace River and trapping are included in When Fur Was King (London, Toronto: J.M. Dent & Sons; New York: E.P. Dutton; 1929), co-written with William Bleasdell Cameron. Henry Moberly was born in Penetanguishene, Upper Canada in 1835 and he died in Saskatchewan in 1931.
