Nearby placenames:
Inchkeith was located at SE 1/4 Sec.15, Twp.13, R.4, W2 and established in 1927-12-01. Inchkeith is visible on the June 1941 Waghorn's Guide: Post Offices in Man, Sask, Alta, & West Ontario, however before this date, the location on the Regina (SK)- Brandon (MB) Canadian National Rail branchline between Langbank on the east, and Kipling to the west was Hawthorne.

Langbank is located in Rural Municipality No. 123 of SILVERWOOD, whereas Kipling is located in RM No. 124 of KINGSLEY Hawthorne was located at 13-4-W2 on the January 1925 Waghorn's Guide. Post Offices in Man. Sask. Alta. and West Ontario and the 1924 SWP map

According to editor E.T. Russell in the book "What's In A Name? Traveling through Saskatchewan with the story behind over 1600 Saskatchewan placenames", and Bill Barry's book "Geographic Names of Saskatchewan", Inchkeith was originally a CNR siding named Hawthorn for about two decades. Hawthorne / Hawthorn had as its namesake the author Nathaniel Hawthorne. However, when the application was went in for a post office for Hawthorne, the name was rejected as there was already established a post office of Hawthorn, so the pioneers re-named their settlement to Inchkeith, honouring an early Scottish settler and a rock at the mouth of the river designated as Inchkeith Rock.

Bender was also located in the section at 13-4-W2 on the above maps. Crystal Spring post office was originally established at Sec.14, Twp.13, R.5, W2 and at the date of 1904-04-01.
Crystal Springs Post office chagned names to Bender in 1907-02-01 and was then established at Sec.7, Twp.13, R.4, W2.
Fitzmaurice, North West Territories post office was established at Sec.4, Twp.14, R.4, W2 in 1895-04-01 and the post office closed in 1919-04-12, however the settlement placename remained on some later maps.

Because the post office no longer had the name Fitzmaurice registered in Saskatchewan, the name was again chosen at another location near Yorkton at SE 1/4 Sec.18, Twp.27, R.8, W2 in 1933-08-16. From the National archives archivia net Post office and post master site
