Particulars One of the three passengers was Lieutenant William Bligh, former commanding officer of the English man-of-war BOUNTY. In April, 1789, the larger part of his crew had risen in mutiny; Bligh and 18 others had been turned adrift in a small open boat off Tofua, one of the Tonga Islands. All but one had survived the desperate voyage from Tofua all the way to Timor, where they arrived on 12-06-1789. See also the HOUTLUST (8260), the ROZENBURG (8261), the SPARENDIJK (8262), the CASTOR(8263), and the VREDENBURG (8329).
