The Russell Island Group is located to the northwest of Guadalcanal. Named "Russell Islands" in honor of British Lord John Russell, Prime Minister 1846-1852. Also known as simply as the "Russells". When first discovered in the middle 1800's, they were named Cape Marsh in the incorrect belief they were an extension of Guadalcanal. During 1942, some coastwatchers still used this name.
