George Russell (ca. 1891-1981) was born in Watkins, Manitoba, and moved to Dunster in 1920, just after the bridge across the Fraser River was finished. In addition to farming, he worked as a butcher and veterinarian. He left Dunster around 1940.

John Adams, who has lived in Dunster since 1920, claims the creek was named because horses used to be left free to “rustle for grub” in the natural meadow along the creek. John says that his father William Henry Adams (1889-1961) named the creek in the 1940s.
