Narrative

between Cape Ducorps and Cape Legoupil (q.v.), Trinity Peninsula. The name Cap Huon was applied to a cape in this rough position by FAE, 1837-40, on 27 February 1838, after Félix-Casimir-Marie Huon de Kermadec (b.1813), steward in the FAE ship Zelée (d'Urville, 1838, map following p.1170; 1841, p.xlviii). Cape Union, as corrupt form (BA chart 3205, 31.x.1921). Kapp Union (HA chart, 1928). Cabo Unión (Chile. DNH chart L, 1947). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in September 1946, when it was found that no cape exists in this position, the name of Huon was transferred to the present feature. Huon Bay (BA chart 3205, 23.ix.1949; APC, 1955, p.12; BAS 250 sheet SP 21-22/13, 1-DOS 1974). Bukhta Ion (Soviet Union. MMF chart, 1961). Bahía Huon (Chile. DNH, 1962, p.129; IHA, 1974, p.157).
