Ten Eyck sought approval from King Kamehameha III to name the house “Washington Place” on the occasion of George Washington’s birthday in 1848. On February 22, King Kamehameha III granted approval and decreed that the name be retained “in all time coming.” http://www.historichawaii.org/Press_Room/Newsletter_Archives/2006/March_2006.pdf Page 4. “On February 22, 1848, at a celebration commemorating George Washington’s birthday at the new home of the late Captain Dominis and Mary Dominis, U.S. Commissioner Anthony Ten Eyck, its first prominent lodger, christened the house ‘Washington Place’,” said Chun. “King Kamehameha III, reigning king, granted approval and further decreed that the name be retained for ‘all time coming.’ For the past 158 years it has carried this name.” Washington Place was built by Captain John Dominis, a wealthy trader, who was lost at sea shortly before its completion in 1847, but it is most noted for being the home of Queen Lili‘uokalani through her marriage to the captain’s son, John Owen Dominis. Hawai‘i’s last queen spent 55 years here and called it her “lovely residence.” In 1919, at the urging of the late queen’s nephew, Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana‘ole, the Legislature of the Territory of Hawai‘i established Washington Place as an executive mansion for Hawai‘i’s governors, thus preserving the home for posterity “as a memorial to the late queen.” In 2002 a new residence for the Governor of Hawai‘i was built adjacent to the historic property, allowing Washington Place to become an historic house museum, while maintaining its use for official state functions." _________________ Christmas Island History http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:rE6wV3HoQeAJ:www.janeresture.com/kiribati_line/christmas_island.htm+%22anthony+ten+eyck%22+hawaii&cd=18&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us Captain J.

Ten years later, he was appointed commissioner to Hawai'i by President Polk, replacing the obdurate George Brown, and was empowered to makea treaty with the Kingdom. In Honolulu, Ten Eyck rentedthe home of Capt. John Dominis as the United States Legation and gave it the name of Washington Place; it is at present the official residence of the Governors of the State of Hawai'i.Ten Eyck argued unsuccessfully to have the goverment permit foreigners to hold land titles in fee simple and to give American consuls the right to nominate juriors in civil and criminal cases. Negotiations reached an impasse in December, 1848, and Ten Eyck was replaced by Charles Eames.Ten Eyck served during the civil war as paymaster of volunteers and was mustered out with the rank of Major."
