"Friars' Island is unmistakable, because it is the nearest to the ferry. Unfortunately, the origin of its name is unknown. It rises higher out of the water than the others and the mound in its centre is crowned with a group of fir-trees. These mark the site of a curious improvised graveyard, where lie a number of victims of a tragic boating accident that took place in 1795."
