Narrative

off-shore NE of Cape Legoupil, Trinity Peninsula, was charted from the coast by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in October 1946 and identified in error with Montravel Rock (q.v.) (BA chart 3205, 23.ix.1949; 1953). Following the work of an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from John Biscoe, 1951-52, Montravel Rock was correctly identified (BA chart 3205, 12.ii.1954) and the name Nomad Rock was applied to the present feature in reference to the "wandering" of features and names on maps and charts of this vicinity (APC, 1958, p.6; BA chart 3205, 23.xi.1962).
