John Franklin's three canoes sailed around this cape on 25 July 1821, and Franklin named it Cape Barrow "after Mr. [John] Barrow of the Admiralty, to whose exertions are mainly owing the discoveries recently made in Arctic geography". John Franklin's expedition of 1819-22 travelled via the Coppermine River to map the Canadian Arctic coast, as part of efforts to find the fabled North-West Passage. Illustration from Narrative of a journey to the shores of the Polar Sea, by John Franklin (London, 1823).
