Description (see definition): Island 1 mi long which lies between Aspland and O'Brien Islands, in the South Shetland Islands. The island was charted in February 1821 by a Russian expedition under Bellingshausen, who gave the name "Ostrova Tri Brata" (three brothers islands) for the present Aspland, Eadie and O'Brien Islands. Eadie Island was named by Lieutenant L.C. Hill, Royal Navy Reserve (RNR),) captain of the Discovery II, which engaged in survey work in the area in 1936-37, for the dockyard manager of the Melbourne Harbour Trust of Williamstown, Australia.
