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 and continued to carry passengers, mainly between Stanley and Montevideo and Stanley and Punta Arenas.  They also provided a mail, freight and passenger service around the Falkland Islands.  Some of the passenger books and lists have survived and scans of the earliest are below.
