There is a Monument to Captain Cereno Jones Kelley on the seawall in the Inner Harbour at Victoria BC.

Captain Kelley was the Master of the sealing schooner C.H. Tupper which he brought out from Nova Scotia to British Columbia via South America.

In 1892 the schooner C.H. Tupper was stopped and boarded by the Imperial Russian Navy on the sealing grounds on suspicion of poaching but was allowed to go free. On January 25, 1893 she was stranded near Pedder Bay BC and salvaged.
