Stewart Island Place Names …… 

Lee Bay

Huirangi …..   “Occurring at Intervals” Apparently kukamuka bushes had been planted evenly along the foreshore


Lee Bay …..   Jacky (John) Lee was an English Midlander and shipwright, originally one of “Cooks” party from Port Pegasus.  Harold Ashwell insisted his name was actually Jacques (Jacka), which would be unusual for an English Midlander. But the timing is about right to  suggest perhaps a French  Huguenot mother expelled from France.
