Lytton was an important town that was used by travellers on the Cariboo Waggon Trail and was situated at the junction of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers. It was named after Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803-73), the Secretary of State for the British Colonies who served under the Prime Minister the 14th Earl of Derby (1799-1869). Lytton took an active interest in the development of British Columbia as a Crown Colony.
