  1. Fascinating read Tim. Before this I only knew that Houtman’s name had been given to some islands off the Western Australian coast. Thanks for filling out the picture.

    • Hey Steve, glad you liked it! I think that island is actually named after Cornelis’ brother Frederick, who seems to have been slightly less of a rogue – though I may be mistaken on both counts!
