Narrative

Island 0.5 mi E of the S tip of Stonington Island, lying in Neny Bay at the foot of Northeast Glacier, by which it is partially covered, off the W coast of Graham Land. The island was presumably first sighted in 1936 by the BGLE, and was roughly charted by them and by the USAS, 1939-41. It was surveyed in 1947 by the FIDS who named it for the RMS Fitzroy, FIDS ship which visited this area in 1947.
