With boggy land and a climate that could be harsh, the Falkland Islands were not the simplest of Britain’s territories to colonize. People did come and the population grew, but slowly. The British Government saw the strategic value of the Islands, but there were few ways in which colonists could make money. Once again, this mostly came down to the
wild cattle and it was the commercialization of this product that saw the founding of the Falkland Islands Company which would dominate the archipelago’s economy for more than a century.
Not an easy beginning, but a beginning none the less.
