Names that other countries have for this feature:
N-most point of Trinity Peninsula, was roughly charted by FAE, 1837-40, in February 1838, when the name Cap Siffrey was applied to the point 5 km to the E (Siffrey Point, q.v.). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1946, the name Cape Siffrey was erroneously applied to the present feature (BA chart 3205, 23.ix.1949; APC, 1955, p.19). Cabo Siffrey (Chile. DNH chart L, 1951; Pierrou, 1970, p.560; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.260). Mys Sifre (Soviet Union. MM chart, 1961). Following air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, and detailed study of FAE records, Siffrey Point was identified as the feature originally named by FAE, and the present feature was renamed Prime Head in reference to its being the N-most point of the peninsula (APC, 1964, p.4; BAS 250 sheet SP 21-22/13, 1-DOS 1974). Mys Praym (Soviet Union. AA, 1966, Pl. 24).
