Introduction

The Falkland Islands Company Limited purchased their first vessel in 1852 as part of their Royal Charter to provide a regular postal service. The Amelia, a 150 ton brigantine under Captain Bracey Robson WILSON, arrived in Stanley 1 July 1852 nine days out from Montevideo with general cargo and 19 passengers. The Falkland Islands Company owned a number of vessels over the subsequent years with their last vessel, the Monsunen, being sold in 1992.

The Archives hold a number of log books for Falkland Islands Company Ltd (FIC) vessels in the FIC Collection.

Introduction

For many years the Falkland Islands Company Limited was the largest single employer in the Falkland Islands. During the 19th and 20th Century the Company imported labour from Uruguay, Chile, Scotland and England; both single men and married men accompanied by their families. Many decided to settle and a large number of people living in the Falkland Islands now can trace their ancestry back to these early immigrants.

The Archives hold a number of wage ledgers for the Company’s employees, mainly Camp, some of which have been summarised in a database.

The Employees & Passengers listing is part of an internal staff research aid.
