Particulars:
The figures of some years before 1930 could be for the island of Saint Helena only.
The mid 19th century population of some 7,000 inhabitants was caused by the fortification of the island of Saint Helena.
At the turn of the twentieth century, about 5,000 Boer prisoners of war were held on Saint Helena.
At this moment no source is available with more consecutive figures to fill in all the gaps.
