one of the Meade Islands (q.v.), off Duff Point, Greenwich Island, was discovered by the early sealers and named Cave Rock from its "large cavern which affords good shelter in bad weather" (Fildes, 1821c; BA, 1916, p.390). Cove [sic] Rock (USHO, 1943, p.97). Roca Bóveda [=cave rock] (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.216).
