....or could it have been named after St Hellier, the capital of Jersey in
the Channel Islands? Many Australian and New Zealand place-names come from
the UK and its surrounding islands (Perth, Nelson, Canterbury, Auckland and
Wellington are just 5 examples which spring to mind). This is only a
suggestion - I may be completely wrong!
