Jack Brown was the recipient of Surrey's 2014 Heritage in the City Award in the Education–Interpretation category for the web site.

Jack Brown is a resident of Surrey. He has been a teacher in Surrey for 35 years. He graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1962 with a Bachelor of Education Secondary with majors in History and Geography.

During 1970–71 he took a year off teaching to complete a Masters Degree in Arts with a concentration in Geography. As part of his Masters program he wrote a thesis titled The Historical Geography of South Surrey, British Columbia. That thesis is located in the Library at Western Washington University and at the University of British Columbia Library, Special Collections.

The Web Page Surrey's History by Jack Brown is in part based on that thesis. This was an original research thesis based on original source documentation and interviews with original settlers or their descendants.

The current web site has been extensively expanded through additional research and contributions by others interested in Surrey's History.

This web site is supported financially by the Surrey Historical Society.
