The bluff was charted and named North Foreland Head by Scottish geologist David Ferguson in 1921. To avoid confusion with North Foreland, the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) rejected this name in 1960 and substituted a new one. The Hobart sealing vessel Caroline (Captain D. Taylor) visited the South Shetland Islands in 1821-22.
