Mt. Rintoul:

Mt. Rintoul:

It is a mountain well over 5000 feet almost due South of Nelson and used by Wakefield as a sailing mark. The name still exists. Robert Stephen Rintoul (1787–1858) founded and edited the London Spectator in 1828. He was a firm friend of Edward Gibbon Wakefield and a champion of the Wakefield colonising theories. He helped Wakefield to develop his theories and published them in his journal.

Probably given by Captain Wakefield in 1841.
