Description From Owner:
  • After Vice-Admiral Lord Collingwood. While still a captain, Collingwood commanded one of Lord Howe's warships at the battle of 'The Glorious First of June,' 1794.
  • A personal friend of Lord Nelson, Collingwood was his second in command at the Battle of Trafalgar and took over when Nelson died, receiving his peerage for his part in the great victory. He is buried by the side of Nelson in St. Paul's Cathedral.
  • Cowen Point after G.H. Cowan, KC (1858-1935), a Vancouver lawyer who had a summer home here.
  • Cape Roger Curtis - After Admiral Sir Roger Curtis, baronet (1746?-1816), flag captain of Lord Howe's flagship Queen Charlotte when that nobleman won his great victory called 'The Glorious First of June,' 1794.
  • Tunstall Bay - When a post office was opened here in 1909, George C. Tunstall Jr., the manager of Western Explosives Ltd., was appointed postmaster.
  • In a letter that year to the Chief Geographer at Ottawa, he stated that Tunstall Bay was named after his father. Actually his father had little connection with Bowen Island.
  • An Overlander of 1862, the senior Tunstall later became the government agent at Kamloops.
  • Apodaca Cove - Apodaca was the name given to Bowen Island by José Maria Narvaez in 1791. (See Bowen Island.)
