The Touet family were early settlers in Cordova Bay. Philip Wesley Touet and his wife Mary came to Saanich from the Channel Islands. Their home in Cordova Bay was called Greenwood and started as a small log home to which structures were later added. Two of the Touet daughters married two sons of the Jeune family, also from the Channel Islands.
Donated in multiple accessions in 2007 by a descendant of the Touet and Jeune families. The framed portraits originally hung in the Touet Family home, “Greenwood”.
