I believe existentialism started by intellectuals who could not understand the meaning of life and decided to fall out on meaninglessness.   Grin

He is an up-and-comer writer who is contemporary to Milan Kundera of Czechoslovakia. He is from the East Polynesian Islands and from the 60ís. I guess the picture on this website is when he was young. I read that he studied in France Guyana in South America and this is when he found existentialism. When he was back in Polynesian Islands he led the rebellion against the semi-democratic monarchy for more freedom and public voice.

Soren Kierkegaard is often thought to be the father of existentialism.

 I think existentialism got it's roots on Nitche and Dostoyevsky even though they weren't consider exsistentialist at the time they lived.

If you ask your self what existentialism is, and find an answer, I guess you could say that existentialism always has been among us. However, most people think that the existential "philosophical school" started with Kierkegaard sometimes in the 1830-40.

I believe you are all correct.
Obviously, a philosophical movement such as existentialism did not start on a particular pre-determined date, but like any other, gradually became known as existentialism.  
 
If anyone is interested, Sartre's works (apparently) have been highly inspired by Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaad, Nietzsche, Husserl, and of course Heidegger!
