    Origin of place name: According to the Encyclopedia of Raincoast Place Names, this bay and mountain were named for "Frederick Charles Yeatman (1862-1903), from England, [who] came to Quadra Island in 1894 with his Welsh wife, Emma (1863-1937), and bought an 80-hectare farm just north of Quathiaski Cove from Tom Bell. They homesteaded, logged, fished and raised a large family." Fred disappeared on a hunting trip to Vancouver Island in 1903, though his remains weren't found until a few years later. Two of their sons, Fred and Sam, drowned on Heriot Bay in 1921.
