As for the name “Trousers Point,” its origins are a subject of local lore. One story claims it commemorates Richard Burgess’s fortunate but trouser-less escape from a nearby shipwreck, the Sarah Ann Blanche. Another, less dramatic account suggests the name comes from a box of trousers discovered on the shore, washed up from the wreck of the Cambridgeshire in 1875.
