Description (see definition): A small island, less than 1 mi in diameter, which lies just off the SE end of Young Island in the Balleny Islands. John Balleny assigned the name in 1839 to an island which he reported to be 10 mi N of Young Island, naming it for J. Row, one of the merchants who united with Charles Enderby in sending out the expedition. Since the island reported by Balleny could not be found by other explorers in the vicinity, the name was assigned to this island discovered by the British ship Discovery II in 1936.
