|History:||This point of land was named "Point Salisbury" in 1794 by Captain Vancouver (1798, v. 3, p. 278), RN, for the Bishop of Salisbury. W. H. Dall, changed the name to Bishop Point in 1883 because the name "Point Salisbury" was accidently transferred on Vancouver's chart to another point 3 miles to the west. Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 8), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), located the point in the right place, but all other charts took the location from the Vancouver chart.|
