History
On Luly 24, 1837, Thomas Simpson (1843, p. 129) wrote, "In honour of the public-spirited Governor of the Hudson's Bay Company, this chain was called Pelly's Mountains." John Simpson, Royal Navy (RN), wrote of Erk-sin-ra, an Eskimo from whom he obtained much information for this native map, "whilst his discription of the coast agreed so minutely in many particulars with the narrative and chart of Messers. Dease and Simpson, he denied the existence of the Pelly Mountains * * *. The mountains certainly do not exist where placed by the charts, * * *."
