Narrative

Point lying nearly 2 mi E of Ephraim Bluff on the S coast of Greenwich Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Point Hardy was used for this feature by sealers in the area as early as 1820. This name, however, was later incorrectly applied to Fort Point lying to the east. In order to avoid further confusion and also duplication with Hardy Point in the South Sandwich Islands, the name was rejected by the UK-APC in 1961 and a new name substituted. Sartorius Point derives from Sartorius Island, the name used for Greenwich Island by James Weddell in 1820-23. Weddell served under Admiral Sir George R. Sartorius (1790-1885) on HMS Avon in 1813-14.
