Thetis Island, in Esquimalt Harbour
The tiny Thetis Island appears on an early map of Esquimalt Harbour, all but smothered, as it most certainly is today, by naval infrastructure. It was the site of a navy coal store.
This 1859 despatch notes that it was part of Lot 53, which wassold in 5 acre lots with the exception of Thetis Island itself, which consists of only one acre, and which was sold separately to a person of the name of Jeremiah Nagle.
