BIOGRAPHY: From "The Journal of Philip Gidley King : Lieutenant, R.N. 1787-1790" - page
43 - 1 March 1788 ....
"Afternoon of ye 3rd, when we came to an anchor in 18 fathom sandy bottom,
in a bay in which lie the rocks, behind which Capt. Cooke landed, & to which
bay I give the name of Duncombe Bay, after ye Member for Yorkshire."

The volcanic activity on Norfolk Island generated four distinct rock
formations, consisting of fine to medium grained olivine basalts and tuffs
(layered volcanic ash). These are the Ball Bay Basalts (the oldest dating to
about 3 million years ago), the Duncombe Bay Basalts (2.66-2.69 million
years), the Cascade Basalts (2.4 million years) and the Steeles Point Basalts
(2.33-2.39 million years).
