Description (see definition): A group of three small tussock-covered islands and a number of barren rocks, lying 1 mi WNW of Cape Paryadin, South Georgia. The position and number of these islands have been approximated on charts for years. In 1951-52, the South Georgia Survey (SGS) reported that the single large island, shown on charts as "Three Point Island," was known locally as Jomfruene (the maidens). Following more detailed survey by the South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1955-56, it is now known that there are three small islands, not one large one, and the local name has been extended to the group.
