Flat-topped point marking the S side of the entrance to Markham Bay on the SE side of James Ross Island. Discovered by a British expedition under Ross, 1839-43, who named it Cape Hamilton after Capt. W.A.B. Hamilton, RN, then private secretary to the Earl of Haddington, and later Second Secretary to the Admiralty. First surveyed by the SwedAE under Nordenskjold, 1901-04, and resurveyed by the FIDS in 1953. Point is considered a more suitable descriptive term for the feature than cape.
