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.
