The first Falkland Islands Gazette to be published in its present form was Volume 1 No 1 dated Thursday 1st January 1891.  Previous to this, official and private notices were pinned on the Government Board situated on Ross Road. “There is no Official Gazette in this Colony.  The only mode of publishing Government notices is to affix them to a board which stands in the principal street of Stanley, called the ‘Notice’ or ‘Gazette’ board.”  [B20; 340, 4]

The Archives hold three volumes of handwritten copies of these early gazettes, proclamations and notices:

  1. Volume E2 covers the period 1846 to 1849 and only the relevant pages have been scanned as it also contains copies of non-related government records. The full volume is available under Government - Laws and Ordinances.
  1. Volume E4 covers the period 1850 to 1867 and also contains an index.
  1. Volume E5 covers the period 1867 to 31 July 1879 and does not contain an index.

From 1891 the Gazettes also contained copies of Ordinances and copies of Legislative Council Minutes of Meetings; the minutes were no longer printed in the Gazette from 1987.


General Index of Gazettes 1850-1867 & 1891-1998

This is a transcription of the indexes to the gazettes for the periods listed and was primarily created as a research aid for Archives staff. As this database has been added to over the years by different people from indexes of varying formats variations should be checked for.
