Cape Howe in Western Australia was named by Captain George Vancouver on 28 September 1791, also in honour of Admiral Howe. Vancouver had previously been a midshipman on Cook's second and third Pacific voyages. This Cape Howe was renamed West Cape Howe by Matthew Flinders on 8 December 1801, to distinguish it from Cook's Cape Howe.
