  • Heriot Bay

    According to The Encyclopedia of Raincoast Place Names, Heriot Bay was named "in 1862 by Captain George Richards after Frederick Lewis Mailand-Heriot (1818-81), a descendant of the 6th Earl of Lauderdale. Heriot was an advocate, justice of the peace, sheriff and deputy lieutenant of Fife, Scotland, and apparently a relative of Rear Admiral Thomas Maitland, commander-in-chief of the Royal Navy's Pacific Station, 1860-62, whom Richards wished to honour."
