History of Kerrisdale

My father grew up in Kerrisdale with his older brother and younger sister. At one time, there alot of people of Scottish descent in Kerrisdale.

I believe that Kerrisdale was likely originally Kerr's Dale. Dale being Nordic for valley. And Kerr being a name of a Scottish clan. (My grandmother's maiden name -- my father's mother's maiden name is Kerr.)
