General context

Many of the early settlers to the area around Big Quill Lake were of Icelandic origin, and the ethnic block settlement area was called the Vatnabyggd settlement. Sleipnir, a store and post office, was located at NE-30-22-15 and was the centre of community life of the Vatnabyggd settlement until it was moved into Wynyard in 1908.[5]

The first wave of Icelandic settlers in the Wynyard area was soon followed by numerous Ukrainian settlers and then British, Polish and German settlers
