The Biscoe Islands were discovered in 1832 by a British expedition under John Biscoe, and were first roughly surveyed by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE), 1903-05, and 1908-10, both under Charcot. Renaud Island was again roughly surveyed in 1935-36 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE), under Rymill. The point was named in 1954 by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) for the cutter Lively, one of the two vessels of Biscoe's 1830-32 expedition.
