Description (see definition): Isolated, mainly ice-covered mountain, 1,250 m, standing 6 mi N of the summit of Mount Edgell, on the W coast of Antarctic Peninsula. The name "Ile Guernesey" was given in 1909 by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, after the island of Guernsey off the coast of France. The position of "Ile Guernesey" on the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) maps does not agree with that of the mountain described above, but from the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) narrative and sketches by Bongrain, French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) surveyor, it has been determined that this mountain was the feature seen in 1909 by Charcot from a position near the center of the entrance to Marguerite Bay. The mountain was surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE), but no name was assigned. It was further surveyed by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1948.
