The dam in question is the extensive body of water called Peppermill Dam TUL. The NGR given above is for Damend as it appears on maps since 1866, but this is not at the end of the dam as its name would suggest, but north of the middle of the dam. On Stobie (1783) it does appear at the western end of the dam, and this suggests that its name was an accurate description when it was coined, but is now a misnomer since the settlement has moved.
