Captain Pack The Falklands approximate 1860
« on: Monday 19 November 12 17:48 GMT (UK) »
Dear all,

In 1860 and prior to that a Captain Pack was stationed at the Falkland Islands, and collected here birds. Sometimes with Charles C Abbott. Does any-one has a clue who Pack is?

Best wishes,

Justin Jansen

 Difficult to narrow this one down without any info.
There are at least eleven passenger records down to Stanley from 1894 onwards in the name of Packe,so its obviously a local name.
Do you know which garrison was stationed there 1860s.

Picked the following at random,,,,,

Mr Packe  b 1857.
Mrs Packe,
Married.
Ship.Tanis.
22 Passengers.
Departed London 1st Nov 1897, bound for Port Stanley.

Hi Brionne,

He was surely between 1858-1860 Captain of the army here (so he must be born somewhere in 1830 or so?), most likely earlier (few years) and little longer (few years). It was surely Captain Pack (without e).

Yours, Justin

With no info,was trying to make a start on the family.
Doubt if the,,,,,,E,,,,,makes a lot of difference in this case.
Perhaps a post to the Military lookup board may help.



We all have different ways of approaching research.

This is Robert Christopher Packe, one of the founders of Packe Brothers, who settled in The Falklands in 1850

He was previously a Captain in 34th Foot

Thanks for the help!

If any-one ever find information on Charles Compton Abbott, who was stationed at Stanley from 1858 till 1860, and captain here, I would be more then happy!

Best wishes,

Justin
