Hi Liz of BC...I don't have the Navy List, but do have a couple of
references to a John Howard Nankivell. It's so unusual a combination I
imagine there must be a family connection of some kind.

born 1848 St.Columb Cornwall, England, John Howard Nankivell, son of John
Hicks Nankivell, physician. (1851 census and Free BMD)

Nankivell Point, Nanoose Harbour and Nankivell Island, Blunden Harbour, B.C.
named after Lieutenant John Howard Nankivell RN of the surveying vessel
Egeria 1903-04.Lieutenant Nankivell was also on the Egeria in 1907.

BC Death Index age 77 Victoria, John Howard Nankivell November 1959.

Best, Val.
