Description From Owner:
  • Donegal Head - This cape commemorates HMS Donegal, commanded by Captain Pulteney Malcolm at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar.
  • Donegal Head - After Thomas Hamilton, ninth Earl of Haddington (1780-1858), a mediocrity whom fortune loved and made, successively, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and First Lord of the Admiralty.
  • (He declined to serve as Viceroy of India.) Haddington Island has only two claims to attention. The stone that faces the provincial legislative buildings came from here, and a provincial ferry, the Queen of Prince Rupert, ran on the rocks here in 1967.
  • Malcolm Island - After Admiral Sir Pulteney Malcolm (1758-1838).
  • In 1816, as Commander-in-Chief of the St. Helena station, he had charge of Napoleon during his final captivity. Named in 1846 by Commander George T. Gordon of HMS Cormorant.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
