Description (see definition): Island 2 mi long and 510 m high, lying off the S coast of Trinity Peninsula between Vega and Eagle Islands. This is believed to be the feature sighted by a British expedition under Ross, 1839-43, and named Cape Corry for Thomas L. Corry, a Lord Commissioner of the Admiralty. In 1945, the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) charted an archipelago in this area. The present application of this name is in accord with the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) "that the name of Corry should be perpetuated on the most conspicuous of these islands as seen from eastward (the direction from which it was seen by Ross)."
