He named Printz Hall.

63 miles NNE of Seahouses. The Crumstone is actually three bare rocky islands, divided by narrow channels, which give the impression from a distance of being one island. The highest part of Crumstone can be seen at all states of the tide and is home to a large colony of grey seals. It is, though, so exposed to the elements that birds seldom, if ever, nest there. The Callers, which are no more than four weed-covered rocks or islets, are dry to 2.3 metres on a low spring tide. They are the highest point of a reef which curves out from Crumstone for some 338 metres to the WNW; the reef, however, is broken by narrow channels between the four islets. All of the Farne Islands have been potential death traps to shipping, especially during the age of sail, but because of their rather remote location and surrounding depths, Crumstone and the Callers are among the most lethal. Since 1795, at least 12 known vessels have been wrecked on the three combined islets of Crumstone. A brig called Britannia (not to be confused with the steamers) was the earliest recorded vessel to come to an untimely end on 3 April 1795.
