History

Name given in 1775-79 by Don Juan de la Bodega y Quadra and Francisco Antonio Maurelle as "Islas de Ladrones," meaning "islands of robbers." This name is "Only found on the maps of the Arteaga expedition of 1779 (in which Quadra and Maurelle took part), but not in the narratives, although thieving Indians in this locality are mentioned by Mourelle (sic)" (Wagner, 1937, p. 395).
