This name originates from Australia. It is part of the Australian Antarctic Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
Named after Sidney Jeffryes, the wireless officer for the second winter of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE) at Commonwealth Bay. In addition to being a competent wireless officer, Jeffryes was also a good cook. He was described by Mawson in The Home of the Blizzard as being "... assiduous at all times, sending and receiving wireless messages (and had) applied himself to work with enthusiasm and perhaps an over-conscientious spirit". He suffered a nervous breakdown in July 1913 from which he never fully recovered, although he returned to wireless duties in August, re-establishing contact with the relay station at Macquarie Island which continued unbroken until November.
