W. S. Fetherstonhaugh, a divisional engineer with the Canadian Northern Railway in Calgary, surveyed in the area in 1906 and 1907. The feature was named by the Alberta-British Columbia Boundary Commission in 1923.
In October , discussions [the Geographic Board of Canada] started regarding new names for the mountains on which the Geodetic Survey established stations. The mountain on which Lambart had a station named for his son, Arthur, was changed to Going Mountain, named for a Grand Trunk Pacific engineer who had worked in the area. Then it was changed to Fetherstonhaugh, named for another railway engineer who had worked in the area. Arthur soon received a third name change. “As Arthur peak is more outstanding than Boyd the Board would prefer that the name Côté [a senator from Edmonton] be applied to it and the name Fetherstonhaugh be transferred to Boyd.” A nearby pass was also named Fetherstonhaugh.— Sherwood
Howard Frederick John Lambart [1880–1946], Dominion Land Surveyor, was head of the survey of the Jasper National Park North Boundary.
