Finniss Point

Finnis Point (or Finniss Point) is a hill a few km west of Hamilton, South Australia, and once a small town. A school operated there from 1864 to 1893.

Spelling of the town's name is problematical: "Finniss" was used for earliest land sales and should be correct if it were named for Boyle Travers Finniss (though he was originally "Finnis"). The alternative spelling was, however, too common to be ignored, especially by the nearby Kapunda Herald in the 1920s, when it was the norm.

Finnis Point Road, some 8 km south of Riverton refers to an unconnected Finnis (or Finniss) Point, where Frederick Hannaford MHA had a farm.
