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
