Luxton, Saskatchewan, Canada

Unincorporated Area

Latitude- 49° 22' 00“ N

Located in RM of Browning #34

My guess-
Possibly named after William Fisher Luxton (1844-1907)
Co-Founder and Editor of the Manitoba Free Press
but history books say it was named after a Canadian Poet / Writer?
Eleanor Luxton, (1908-1995) granddaughter of William,
wrote a book on Banff, so could be named for her?
