Narrative

rising to c. 455m SW of Avicenna Bay, SW Brabant Island, was roughly charted by BeAE, 31 January 1898, when the point on the coast 1km S of the feature was named Cap Lagrange after Charles-Henri Lagrange (1851-1932), Director, Service Astronomique de l'Observatoire Royal de Belgique; member of the Académie Royale de Belgique and of the Commission de la Belgica appointed in December 1899 (Lecointe, map, 1899; 1900, map facing p.132; 1905, Pl.7 following p.110). Cape Lagrange, referring to the point (Cook, 1900, map p.xx; USHO, 1943, p.121; APC, 1955, p.13). The name Cap d'Ursel (d'Ursel Point, q.v.) was also applied in error to the point and the name Cap Lagrange to Strath Point (q.v.) (Lecointe, 1905, Pl.20 following p.110). Cabo Lagrange (Riso Patron S., 1908, end map). Lagrange Cape (USBGN, 1956, p.184). Following survey by FIDS from Norsel in April 1955 and air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, the name Lagrange Peak was applied to the peak surmounting the point (APC, 1960, p.5; BA chart 3566, 25.viii.1961; USBGN, 1964, p.14; BAS 250 sheet SQ 19-20/4, 1-DOS 1974). Mount Bulcke (q.v.), Cape d'Ursel, Cape Garcia (q.v.), all applied in error (USHO, 1960, p.357, 2nd and 3rd views; p.368, 3rd view).
