Do not be confused by the two names given to the same river. I was confounded for quite a while until I understood that there was an official and unofficial name for this waterway, which points to the chronology of settlement on the Island. Samuel Holland named the river in 1765 in honor of Thomas Orby Hunter, Lord of the Admiralty. When Scottish immigrants settled the area in the 1820s, they named their new home New Glasgow and called the river the River Clyde. Certainly nostalgia had much to do with its renaming. Don’t argue the point—especially when you encounter Bruce MacNaughton, founder and owner of PEI Preserves, who wears a kilt and calls the river the Clyde. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States. We plan to expand our topomap database in the future, however this map is not available at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
