In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Reads Island like this:

READS ISLAND, an island of about 300 acres in the N of Lincoln; in the Humber, between Whittonness and Oysterness. It was formed gradually on the Pudding-Pie sand; it took its name from Mr. Read of Burton-Stather; and it was converted from useless silt into good pasture.
