Excerpt from A Record of Tasmanian Nomenclature: With Dates and Origins Anthony Van Diemen, and it lost this only to have it replaced by a name derived from that of Tasman, the dis coverer. Some dozen well-known names along the coast from Maatsuyker to Schouten Island, both named after members of the Dutch Council of the Indies serve to remind us that Tasman came, not from Holland. But from the Dutch colonies in the Malay Archi pelago. These we owe to Tasman him self. There are also Storm Bay and Maria Island and Frederick Henry Cape and Bay even if the name has in the latter instance been mistakenly trans ferred to a bay which Tasman never saw.
