A large group of low scattered mountains and nunataks of about 70 mi extent in W ellsworth Land. They lie just E of Cranton Bay and Pine Island Bay at the E extremity of Amundsen Sea, and are bounded on the N by Cosgrove Ice Shelf and on the S by Pine Island Glacier. Discovered by members of the USAS in flights from the USS Bear in February 1940, and further delineated from air photos taken by USN Operation HighJump in December 1946. The full extent of the group was mapped by USGS from USN air photos of 1966. Named by US-SCAN after Capt. William L. Hudson, commander of the Peacock during USEE, 1838-42. The Peacock, accompanied by the Flying Fish under Lt. Walker, cruised along the edge of the pack to the N of this area for several days during the latter part of March 1839.
