Names that other countries have for this feature:
ESE of Prime Head, Trinity Peninsula, was roughly charted by FAE, 1837-40, in February 1838 and named Cap Siffrey probably after a supporter of the expedition (Vincendon-Dumoulin, atlas, 1847, Pl.8). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in October 1946, the name of Siffrey was applied in error to Prime Head (q.v.). Following air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, the original feature named by FAE was correctly identified. Punta Black, as rejected name (Argentina. MM, 1957a, p.7).
