This article is an edited version of a talk given by the author to members of the Historical Society of the Northern Territory in 2010. Charles Darwin never saw the port named after him in September 1939. It was named by Darwin's ex-shipmate, John Lort Stokes, chief surveyor in the hydrographical survey ship, HMS Beagle, as everyone who lives in Darwin knows - or should know; and he is duly commemorated there in Stokes Hill and Stokes Hill wharf.
