This suggests there was either confusion over the exact place where Phillip was speared, or confusion/indecision at the time as to what the different bays in North Harbour were to be called. g. : 10-11). Local historians Shelagh and George Champion (1993) concluded from their research that Phillip was speared in present-day Manly Cove. Accordingly, Manly Cove could be either ‘Kayoomay’ or ‘Kayyeemy’/‘Kayyemy’, or both. After 1788, the whole of North Harbour was referred to as Manly Bay, which suggests the name ‘Kayyeemy’ could equally have been the name for North Harbour.

Wentworth may thus have been referring to ‘Dawes Battery’ on Bennelong Point. 1790-1792: 361) lists the placename for Cockatoo Island as ‘Wareamah’. 1. ‘Biloela’ was the name given to the Public Industrial School and Reformatory for Girls established on Cockatoo Island in 1871 (Jervis 1945: 402; State Records NSW 2006).
