Ellenborough Peninsula
This peninsula is located on the northeastern side of Vancouver Island. Walbran notes that Ellenborough Peninsula was named in 1846 by Commander Gordon.1 Walbran adds that the name is obsolete (as of circa 1906) but places the peninsula on the opposite side of Broughton strait and westward of Port McNeill.2
