I had seen at one time that Acklin Islands had been inhabited by English convicts aboard boats mastered by Lionel or Jo. Acklin.No Proof!
Just last week I read up again on Acklin Islands, and it was said that it was where Loyalists went, I'm assuming after/during the Revolutionary War.I have been unable to pin down exactly why they are named as they are.
I believe the largest of the islands has only 450 full time residents, and that the area is one fantastic, pristine, fishing area.
