There are three of Mayaguana (in the Bahamas) dated 16 July (black ink and pencil, on wide strips of paper, 120 × 400 mm, torn from a ledger with columns and headings printed in red). One of them is recorded as being drawn from HMS 'Endymion'. A thinner strip (50 × 400 mm) of roughly the same profile, undated, is drawn by a different hand, which appears to have also drawn on a smaller strip of the same paper (60 × 340 mm) a profile on 27 August from 'Endymion'. Three other profiles, variously in black ink and pencil, are drawn on blank strips of paper (each approximately 100 × 320 mm). One strip contains three profiles, with the caption 'These views taken on bd. the ship Eliza on the 29th of October 1790'. Another one has this intriguing caption: 'When the extreems [sic] of Sand Key bear as expres'd then are you [sic] on the Reef where His Majesty's Ship Endymion was lost on the 28th of August 1790. [Signed] Lt. D. Woodriff'. Endymion Rock, a shallow reef at the southern end of the Turks Island Passage, commemorates the unhappy event. The 'Australian Dictionary of Biography' provides details of Woodriff's subsequent career: in 1792, after 'eleven years service on the American Station and in the West Indies ... [he] was sent to Australia in the "Kitty", primarily to bring out supplies and convicts, but also to make a report on the naval defences of Port Jackson'. He returned to England in 1794. In April 1802 he 'was gazetted post captain and next year appointed to command HMS "Calcutta" in David Collins's expedition to found a new settlement in Bass Strait. He remained with Collins in Port Phillip Bay until December but, to the annoyance of both Collins and Governor Philip Gidley King, Woodriff then refused to go to the Derwent when Collins decided to move the settlement; because of his instructions to bring to England as quickly as possible the naval stores awaiting him at Port Jackson, he felt he had no alternative but to go at once to Sydney to collect them, for the "Ocean" transport was sufficient for the move to Van Diemen's Land. While in Port Jackson he helped to check the convict insurrection planned to support the one at Castle Hill, and was granted 1000 acres (405 ha) at Penrith. Portion of this grant is still owned by his descendants'.
