Names that other countries have for this feature:
Rocky, crescent-shaped island lying 1.5 mi WNW of the N tip of Robert Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Heywood's Isles, for Capt. Peter Heywood, RN, was given by George Powell in 1821-22 to a group of islands off the NW coast of Robert Island. In 1935, DI personnel on the Discovery II charted these islands, giving the name Hummock Island to the feature here described. Air photos now show that a group name for the islands is not required and the name Heywood Islands has been vacated. The alteration of Hummock Island to Heywood Island retains Powell's original naming in the area and eliminates a duplicate name.
