It's in the bok of Lost Tales, cos that's where Aelfwine fines them in the first place.

Yeah they were pardoned in the Silm, but they get to go to Valinor in that, they are only banished to Tol Erressea in the Bolt.

Yeah that's where it came from in the first place. The Teleri who took ages to go to Valinor begged Ulmo to leave the island ferry where they could still see both, and it became Tol Erressea.

Thought so. cheers! Was it there also that the kinslayings occured after the Exile of the Noldor??? I guess also it must have been far to the north due to the ice flows that separated it with Beleriand.
Sorry guys and gals, bear with me, I only read the Sil once so far and things tend to geta little jumbled up. Am I far off the mark???

The kinslaying took place at the Havens of Alqualonde where most of the Teleri settled on the shores of Valinor, just underneath the gap of thingy. Not all of them stayed on Tol Eressea. The Noldor who were left on the shores after Feanor had legged it with the boats then marched all the way up to the Helcaraxe (grinding ice) to collect the Doom of Mandos and act like morons generally.
Man, and I did that from memory! Have I really got no life?
