CREW LIST - HMS BOUNTY - 1787 - 1790

This list contains the 46 crew and officers of the HMS Bounty when it left England in 1787 under the command of Captain Bligh.

The events of the voyage are well known and I would recommend The Bounty - The true story of the Mutiny on the Bounty by Caroline Alexander. (Harper Perennial 2004 ISBN 0 00 653246 2) for further information.

After the mutiny, nine crew members went on to Pitcairn Island, sixteen were left in Tahiti and 18 sailed with Captain Bligh on his epic voyage.

The nine to Pitcairn were; ADAMS, BROWN, CHRISTIAN, MARTIN, McCOY, MILLS, QUINTAL, WILLIAMS and YOUNG. Descendants of many of these are now resident on Norfolk Island.

The PITCAIRN ISLAND STUDY CENTER - has genealogical information on all the crew members of the HMS (HMAV) BOUNTY.
