The Florida Keys

Ragged Keys

Ragged Keys are small islands north of the upper Florida Keys.

They are located in Biscayne Bay, just north of Sands Key.

Earlier names for these islands were "Knox Island", "Laurence Island", "Los Paradisos", "Mascaras", "Mucaras", "Mucasas", "Pollock Island" and "Soldiers Island".

Bernard Romans, who visited these keys in 1774, wrote that these were "Seven rocks called Mascaras", which he said had been "Ill copied on English charts as Mucares".
