Yup, sorry if I wasn't clear about that. Puerto Rico's 'coffin' is a different island and both place names existed well before Kingsley/Stevenson.

Kingsley was referring to the BVI, not Puerto Rico and RLS got it from Kingsley. Where Kinglsey got it from... only he knows.

Deadman's Beach on adjacent Peter Island is almost certainly taken from the RLS fiction/local fakelore. Supposedly where the drowned bodies of the pirates washed up after trying to escape.
