Dublin Iceland was in possession of the slavers family Caulker. In 1820 the family left the island and leased it to the British Empire . After the slave trade ended, Francis Caulker signed an agreement with British governor Charles McCarthy . This provided for the settlement of freed slaves on the island. In 1843 the Dublin settlement became the headquarters of local government. In 1847 about 500 people lived on the island.
