Names that other countries have for this feature:
Steep cliff forming the N end of Hoseason Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. The cape appears in rough outline on an 1828 chart published by Laurie and was presumably observed in 1824 by James Hoseason, mate of the British sealing expedition under Hughes. It was named by a British expedition under Foster, 1828-31, probably for Sir John Barrow, Sec. of the Admiralty, 1804-06 and 1807-45, and founder of the Royal Geographical Society. The cape was more accurately charted by the FrAE, 1903-05, under Charcot.
