About María Dominga Sáez Pérez

Born on 19 November 1800, in Oriental Province, Argentina, the daughter of Josefa Pérez and Francisco Sáez, she married Luis Vernet, a German merchant, on 17 August 1819. Vernet obtained vast land in the Soledad and Estados islands, (Malvinas) to set up an agricultural and livestock colony. He became governor of the archipelago on 10 June 1829. On 14 July 1829 she, her children and servants arrived at Puerto Luis, Soledad Island and for the rest of the year she kept a diary of her impressions. Her daughter, Matilde ("Malvina") was the first Argentinean born in the Malvinas (1830). They were harassed by the North American fishermen and returned to Buenos Aires. Shortly afterwards the islands were taken by English invading forces and they were unable to return. They lived in Brazil for a time before returning to Buenos Aires where she died on 25 March 1858.
