Island in Pearl Harbor and golf course, named for a former owner, Dr. S.P. Ford (1818-1866), a Honolulu physician during the 1850s and 1860s. In 1862, when roads were coming into existence on the island, local newspapers reported that he often drove in a carriage to the other side of Oʻahu. (McClellan, 1937.)
