Update on the name Bellerive

New research, since that undertaken for my last posting where I indicated the name change happened in the 1830s, gives much more precise information. I have just discovered that the present name of Bellerive was officially proclaimed in 1892.  This news makes me understand clearly why Glover and von Guerard referred to the site as Kangaroo Point.
