Description (see definition): Conspicuous rocky point 3 mi SW of Round Point on the N coast of King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. This feature was charted and named Round Island by DI personnel on the not an island but a rocky point. Since there is already a Round Point on King George Island, a new name was substituted by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1960. Davey Point is named for Graham J. Davey, Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) assistant surveyor at Admiralty Bay in 1957 and 1958, who triangulated King George Island and extended this triangulation to Nelson, Robert and Greenwich Islands.
