Narrative

between Cape Roquemaurel and Marescot Point, Trinity Peninsula, was roughly charted by FAE, 1837-40, on 27 February 1838 and named Cap Tannaron [sic] after Lieut. de Vaisseau Charles-Jules-Adolphe Thanaron (b. 1809) of the expedition ship Zélée (d'Urville, 1838, map following p.1170). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in September 1946, when this feature could not be identified, the name of Thanaron was applied to Hanson Hill (q.v.). The feature was later identified in FIDASE air photographs of 1956-57. Thanaron Point (APC, 1964, p.4; BAS 250 sheet SP 21-22/13, 1-DOS 1974).
