Name ID: 111653 Place ID: 14958

NE part of the Antarctic Peninsula NE of the line Cape Kjellman-Cape Longing, extending to Prime Head. It is generally accepted that the peninsula was very roughly charted on its N coast, 30 January 1820, by Bransfield who reported land lying in c. 63°30'S, 60°00'W although opinion was divided as to what Bransfield had actually seen. Bransfield named his discovery Trinity Land after the "Trinity Board" (GBR chart, 1822), and the name was later applied collectively to part of the N coast of the present peninsula and to Davis Coast. The N coast of the peninsula was further charted by FAE, 1837-40 and, on 27 February 1838, called Terre Louis Philippe after Louis Philippe I, King of the French, who had personally suggested the idea of exploration in Antarctic waters by this expedition. Trinity Peninsula (GBR chart, 1921; APC, 1953). For further information see British Antarctic Territory Gazetteer.

Trinity Peninsula (USA) 63° 37' 00.0" S 58° 20' 00.0" W Peninsula
Name ID: 132882 Place ID: 14958

The extreme northeast portion of the Antarctic Peninsula, extending northeastward for about 80 mi from a line connecting Cape Kater and Cape Longing. Dating back more than a century, chartmakers used various names (Trinity, Palmer, Louis Philippe) for this portion of the Antarctic peninsula, each name having some historical merit. The recommended name derives from "Trinity Land" given by Edward Bransfield in January 1820, although the precise application by him has not been identified with certainty and is a matter of different interpretation by Antarctic historians. Named after the Trinity Board.
