My only comment is that Mount Lyall is not named after Sir Charles Lyell (spelled with an "e") but after David Lyall (1817-1895) MD RN FLS, the botanist and plant collector who collected plants and surveyed the area as part of the north American land boundary commission. See the biographical article in The Linnean 2010 vol 26. Part 2.
