The name Kapp Bellue was apparently applied to the NW point of he main island (HA chart, 1927). Following survey of the area by DI in 1930-31, these islands were confused with Bragg Islands (q.v.) to which DI applied the name Marin Darbel Islands, in association with Darbel Bay (Ardley and others, chart, 1930; BA, 1942, p.47; [name deleted] 1952, p.28). Islas Quirihue after the Chilean town, referring collectively to these islands and to Owston Islands (q.v.) (Chile. DNH chart LII, 1947). The islands were surveyed by FIDS from "Detaille Island" in 1957. Darbel Islands (APC, 1959a, p.5; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961). Darbel Island, referring to the largest island (BA, 1974, p.200).
