Description (see definition): The southern extremity of Sturge Island in the Balleny Islands. In 1841, Captain James C. Ross, viewing Sturge Island from a considerable distance, thought it a group of three islands. He named the southernmost "Smyth Island" for his friend Captain William Henry Smyth, Royal Navy (RN), President of the Royal Astronomical Society. Ross' error was discovered in 1904 by Captain Robert F. Scott, who applied the name to the southernmost point on Sturge Island.
