Settlement at Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, May 1849
Mounted in album with PAI4605-PAI4609, PAI4611-PAI4670.; No.5. Technique includes scraped highlights. No. 5 in Fanshawe's Pacific album, 1849-1852. Captioned by the artist on the album page below the image, as title. Fanshawe's 'Daphne' anchored in Port William, East Falkland, on 21 May 1849, from which the strait called 'the Narrows' leads into Stanley Harbour. The Governor at the time (1847-55) was George Rennie (previously a sculptor). A more recent settler, whom Fanshawe met and went shooting with, was Captain (later Admiral Sir) Bartholomew Sulivan RN (1810-90), who had come out to farm with his family in April 1849, after previously spending five years surveying the islands. When Fanshawe called again on his way home in 1852 Sulivan had gone, to return to the Navy, in which he was senior surveying officer in the Baltic during the Crimean War. See Fanshawe  pp.168 -72 for his account of his brief stay in the islands. This is one of a group of three drawings of them, PAI4609 - PAI4611.
