This island was the property of General Lachlan McIntosh by a grant of 1758, and was the principal home of his family up to and during the early years of the Revolution. The island was in rice cultivation for many years.

In 1808, a Canal, called General`s Cut, was dug through the island to connect the Darien River with the middle branch of the Altamaha, "for the convenience of the adjoining planters." This Cut, located a short distance east of here, was later used to ferry between Darien and the southern plantations of the Delta.
