Narrative

Headland 4 mi N of the entrance to Holtedahl Bay, on the W coast of Graham Land. Discovered by the FrAE, 1908-10, who from a distant position in Pendleton Strait charted this feature as an island, which Charcot named for A. Ferin, French Vice-consul at Ponta Delgada, Azores. The BGLE under Rymill, 1934-37, charted this coast and correlated their work with that of Charcot. Ferin Head, as here applied, is in accord with the BGLE interpretation.
