The name is derived from the Latin for Utie's Hope, a 2,300-acre manorial grant in 1661 to Col. Nathaniel Utie, for whom this island was surveyed in 1658. Settling here from Virginia, Utie traded with the Indians, became a member of the Maryland Governor's Council and represented Lord Baltimore in a boundary dispute with the Dutch in Delaware. A peace treaty with the Susquehannoughs was signed on the island by Gov. Philip Calvert and his council May 16, 1661. A house built by Utie at this end of the island no longer stands.
