Narrative

two islands with off-lying rocks N of Lauzanne Cove, Flandres Bay, Danco Coast, were roughly charted by BeAE, 11 February 1989, and named IÎles Guyou after Capt. E. Guyou (Guyou Bay, q.v.), who prepared a report on the magnetic results of the expedition (Lecointe, map, 1899; 1903, Carte 5). Guyou Islands (BA chart 1238, viii.1900; APC, 1960, p. 4; BA chart 3566, 25.viii.1961). Guyou Island, referring to the larger island (BA chart 3205, 1.vi.1901). Isla Guyon [sic], referring to the larger island ([Irízar], 1903, map facing p.4). Isla Guyou, referring to the larger island (Riso Patron S., 1908, end map). The name Guyou Isles was later misapplied collectively to Ménier Island (q.v.) and Littlespace Island (q.v.), and the name Guyou Island to Ménier Island. The names Isla Grande and Isla Chico (q.v.) were applied respectively by AAE, 1952-53, to the larger and smaller Guyou Islands. The islands were photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57.
