Nutts Island
Currently, no island in the region described in this despatch, which references disputes over gold in Englefield Bay, bears the name “Nutts Island”. However, the name may be an earlier moniker of one of the island outlined in the map above. It could also refer to nearby Hibben Island, the large triangle-shaped island in the middle of Englefield Bay, as it's unclear when the name “Hibben” comes into use, and “Nutts Island” hosted fifteen men, a block house, and two small pieces of ordnance.
