Small identifies the penal colony as being on "Blair Island." In fact the location was in Port Blair, on Chatham Island. The British operated a naval base and penal colony there from 1789-91. The colony was moved to Port Cornwallis on Great Andaman, and abandoned in 1796. The colony was then re-established at Port Blair in 1858, to handle prisoners convicted of offenses during the Indian Mutiny of 1857. Port Blair is now the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, a "union territory" of India.
