Introduction

The majority of the Falkland Islands Company Limited’s correspondence was accessioned in 2013 and work is ongoing on cataloguing. The inward despatches have now been boxed as Series C.  Series D consists of copies of outward despatches which were bound in manuscript books.  General correspondence is filed under Series EF and correspondence to/from the Falkland Islands Government is filed under Series EG.

The Precis of Subjects has been mostly transcribed from the volumes named with additional data added. The details of Falkland Islands Government correspondence was prepared for internal staff use and only covers some years and is not necessarily a complete description of topics.

Lane's Despatches for 1858 and 1859 No's 1 to 39 is a transcription of the original manuscript book with additional notes.

SERIES D:

Please note: these despatches were copied on to thin tracing paper and then bound into books.  The ink used on some copies has faded over the years, some to the point where they are now illegible.  The best scan possible has been taken but some pages are badly faded, faded completely or unable to be fully scanned without damaging the binding.
