Island nearly 5 mi long, lying 3 mi SW of D'Urville Island off the NE end of Antarctic Peninsula. The name Point Bransfield, after Edward Bransfield, Master, RN, was given in 1842 by a British expedition under Ross to the low western termination of what is now the Joinville Island group. A 1947 survey by the FIDS determined that this western termination is a separate island.
