One of the first remaining records of people on Weddell was when Charles Barnard of the ‘Nanina’ was marooned in The Falklands in 1813 with four sailors. They spent some time on Weddell and built several shelters on the Island which at the time was frequented by many other sealers and whalers. The New York Public Library holds an original copy of Barnard’s manuscript “A Narrative of the Sufferings and Adventures of C.H.B.: In a Recent Voyage Round the World” – a copy of which resides in The Lodge.
