Food Source 1654 – 1700

The Kramat as it is today.

The ‘formalisation’ of the Island as a stop and resting place heralded the start of the Island’s development when in addition to food supplies, captains of ships began leaving letters or messages on the Island for other voyagers. These were usually left in designated hidden spots that basically served as post boxes.

These ‘developments’ required dedicated people to look after the sheep and maintain the vegetable garden or little farmyard economy. In March 1654 four or five men were placed on the Island to build a shed and stay on the Island to perform these functions, heralding in human settlement.
