Further Information

On the 27th April George Gauld, in his newly acquired survey sloop Florida, left Port Royal Jamaica accompanied by HMS Northampton.  He had just finished his masterful surveys of the harbour of Kingston and Port Royal for Vice-Admiral Sir George Rodney, Commander in chief in Jamaica.  On May 4th the two ships anchored in a small cove named Hogstie Bay, at the west end of Grand Cayman.  Leaving the Northampton and Florida at anchor, Gauld and his survey team took to their smaller boats to start this survey of the island immediately.

Starting at Sandy Key on the South west point of the island Gauld made observations and the following day he began a nine-day circumnavigation of the island.  Some soundings were taken in North Sound and also inside the reef at the eastern end of the island.  Further soundings were made in Hogstie Bay down to Sandy Key.
