First roughly charted and named Black Point by Robert Fildes in 1820-22. As there is already a Black Point on Livingston Island, this name was rejected and a new one substituted by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1958. John Beach is named after the brig John (Captain John Walker) of London, which was sealing in the South Shetland Islands in 1820-21 and 1821-22.
