KNUTSFORD, on Peterson Crk 6 km south of KAMLOOPS, is a cattle and grain farming (see CATTLE INDUSTRY; AGRICULTURE) district that has grown more residential, with many small acreages and hobby farms. It was named after Knutsford, England, former home of Robert Longbridge, an early storekeeper and postmaster. The area was first settled in 1872 by James Mellors; a horse breeder named Archie McConnell was another pioneer. An agricultural showground was established in 1914.
