Authentic history of the Mutineers of the Bounty

  • AU PMB MS 99
  • Collectie
  • 1820 - 1821

Samuel Greatheed (d.1823) was one of the founders of the London Missionary Society.

This work, written under the pen-name Nausistratus, was published as a series of articles in the <I>Sailor's Magazine and Naval Miscellany</I>, London, 1820-21, Vol.1, p. 402-6 and 449-56, and Vol.2, p. 1-8. It deals with the <I>Bounty</I> mutiny and its aftermath. The work is based on printed sources, the then-unpublished journal of James Morrison of the <I>Bounty</I>, and verbal communications from an officer of <I>HMS Pandora</I> which was sent to the Pacific to find and arrest the <I>Bounty</I> mutineers. It includes a number of details not published elsewhere. For a brief account of Greatheed's interest in <I>Bounty matters</I>, see Rolf Du Rietz's Note sur l'Histoire des Manuscrits de James Morrison in <I>Journal de James Morrison</I>, Paris, 1966.

  • 1815 - 1822

At the beginning of 1815, Samuel Hill, a sea captain, calculated that he had lost $7,000 since the beginning of the war of 1812. To repair his fortunes, he undertook the command of the Ophelia on a speculative voyage from Boston to Chile, China and return. On his return, after an absence of 20 months, he embarked almost immediately on a second and similar voyage in the Packet. On this voyage three trips were made from Chile to China. the Packet returned to Boston after a voyage of four years, eleven months and 24 days.

Informative accounts of proceedings and places visited on the voyages outlined above. On the first voyage, Hill visited or sighted the following Pacific Islands: Juan Fernandez, Galapagos, Hawaii, Ebon Atoll, Aranuka (Gilbert Islands), Santa Ana and Bougainville (Solomons), New Britain, New Ireland, the Admiralty Islands and Mapia. The accounts of Hawaii, Bougainville and Mapia are especially interesting. On the second voyage, Hill was in Hawaii on three occasions. He also landed on Agrigan in the Marianas. Otherwise he generally kept clear of the islands.
