The North West Mounted Police was established in 1873 to bring Canadian authority to the North West Territories (present-day Alberta and Saskatchewan). Its jurisdiction grew to include the Yukon in 1895, the Arctic Coast in 1903 and northern Manitoba in 1912. http://www.genealogy.gc.ca/10/101303_e.html

I have a subscription to the Paper of Records website http://www.paperofrecord.com/  and while searching for information on a cousin, John Hockley Thorne, who went to the Klondike and never returned; I found the following details about another Hockley. Is this your Hockley family?
