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 Falkland Islands Company Ltd were also Lloyd's Agents and kept their own shipping registers from which they prepared regular returns.

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

The Ships & Shipping listing is part of an internal staff research aid.
