Anno 1826 Ioannes Richardson naturalista paeninsulam meridianam et occidentalem vidit, quam Terram Wollastonianam appellavit.[5] Anno 1839, Petrus Warren Dease et Thomas Simpson exploratores, oram meridianam orientemque sequentes, omnem insulam Victoria Land ('Terram Victorianam') appellaverunt.[6] Annis 1850 et 1851, Robertus McClure plurimum Insulae Banksianae circumnavigavit, quam a residuo Terrae Victorianae separavit; ipse et sui tabulas geographicas septentrionalis occidentalisque Insulae Victorianae orarum fecerunt.[7] Anno 1905, Godfred Hansen, unus e nautis Rodoaldi Amundsen, tabulas orae orientalis usque ad Caput Nansen fecit,[8] atque annis 1916 et 1917, Storker T. Storkerson, explorator in Canadian Arctic Expedition, Vilhjalmur Stefansson duce, tabulas orae septentrionis orientalisque fecit, Paeninsulam Storkersonianam videns.[9]
