Description From Owner:
  • Once a rendezvous for whaling ships. Back around 1890 Elijah Fader used to cut up whales in this bay.
  • Marshall Point - Without any indication as to whom Marshall might be, Captain Vancouver, in late June 1792, gave the name of Point Marshall to 'the NW point of the island of Fevada' (Texada).
  • Later his Point Marshall became first Cohoe Point and then, in 1945, Kiddie Point after Thomas Kiddie, a Texada mining engineer.
  • Meanwhile a second promontory, a mile to the south, became Marshall Point. The name had, in Kaye Lamb's phrase, 'migrated.'
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
