Descubiertas por la Expedición Antártica Francesa de 1837-1840, bajo la dirección del comandante Jules Dumont D'Urville, quien le dio este nombre por Jaques Hombron, un miembro de la Expedición. Las rocas fueron cartografiadas por el FIDS en 1946. Son dos rocas separadas 1 milla de otra, que emergen a 10 millas al NE del cabo Roquemaurel y a 2 millas de la costa NW de la península Luis Felipe.
