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.
  • Pulteney Point - After Admiral Sir Pulteney Malcolm (1758-1838).
  • Sointula - In December 1901 a Finnish cooperative colony was founded here.
  • . The name chosen for it is the Finnish word for 'harmony.' Unfortunately, like most utopias, the colony proved neither harmonious nor successful and was disbanded in 1905, with about half of the members leaving the island.
