Narrative

SE entrance point of Hope Bay (q.v.), Trinity Peninsula, was charted by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from John Biscoe in February 1952; called by AAE Punta Candado [=pendant point], probably from the 30-m ice wall overhanging the point (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.312 and p.314a, lower view); named Stone Point after Henry William Stone (b.1914), of St John's, Newfoundland, First Mate in the FIDS charter ship Trepassey, 1946-47 (BA chart 3213, 23.x.1953; APC, 1955, p.20; DOS 310 Hope Bay sheet, 1961). Punta Stone (Chile. DNH chart 510, 1955; IHA, 1974, p.269). Punta de las Rocas [=point of the rocks], so called by AAE from the rocks off the point (Argentina.
