volcanic island rising to 240m above sea level, E of King George Island, was discovered by Bransfield, 22 January 1820, and named Bridgemans Island, probably after Capt. (later Vice-Adm.) The Hon.

Brian's Isle or Burning Mount, incorrectly positioned but almost certainly referring to this island (Sherratt, 1821, map facing cols, 1215-16).
