Introduction

From 1833 to current day the population of the Falkland Islands has always been culturally diverse. From intermarriage and interaction between the different nationalities the unique culture of the Islands gradually evolved and is reflected today in traditions, place names and building styles.

Some of the following records are not necessarily 100% historically accurate but do give a great snapshot of life in the Falkland Islands at the time of being written.

Another good source of information on early life is “The Falkland Islands” by V F Boyson – Oxford University Press 1924

Introduction

The majority of 19th Century non-British settlers and workers came to the Falkland Islands from or through Montevideo, Uruguay. Other settlers were sailors who were either shipwrecked or decided to stay. Late in the 19th Century there was constant migration between the Falkland Islands and Chile & Patagonia or “The Coast” as it was referred to locally.

The Archives hold very few immigration records. The following lists often show the age and nationality of some of these early immigrants and seamen. These lists are those researched to date and are not necessarily complete and should not be treated as such.

NB Oriental is often used as an abbreviation for Banda Oriental in these documents.

From 1833 to current day the population of the Falkland Islands has always been culturally diverse. With some families now able to claim eight or nine generations the following family files show the origin of some of the early families who lived, worked and often settled in the Falkland Islands.

These files are not a complete representation of families in the Falkland Islands in the 19th century but are those researched by the Archives over the last 10 years.

To protect the privacy of people who are still alive some information has been redacted.

Introduction

Unfortunately only four censuses have survived prior to the invasion of the Falkland Islands in 1982. The 1851 census should be treated with caution as it was used as a template for subsequent censuses and jury lists and the pencil additions often relate to later years.

The transcriptions are in alphabetical order and contain additional notes made by the Archives.
