Legacy[edit]

Pender Harbour, a harbour and group of communities on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada, are named for Pender, as are North and South Pender Islands in the Southern Gulf Islands and various placenames associated with those islands. Farther north are also a Mount Pender on Campania Island and a Pender Point on Neroutsos Inlet. The Pender Harbour area also includes a Mount Daniel, a Daniel Point and a Pender Hill; all three are parkland.
