Narrative

A strait between Rabot and Lavoisier Islands, in the Biscoe Islands. The FrAE, in accordance with Charcot's conception of this water feature, applied the name Pendleton Bay in January 1909. The BGLE under Rymill, 1934-37, recognizing that it is really a strait, renamed it Pendleton Strait. Named by Charcot for Capt. Benjamin Pendleton, Yankee sealer of Stonington, CT. Captain Pendleton was commodore of the little fleet which included the sloop Hero under Capt. Nathaniel B. Palmer who, at Pendleton's direction, explored this area in January 1821.
