Fletcher Christian, the leader of the mutineers on HMS Bounty in 1789, was born in Eaglesfield (near Cockermouth) on 25 September 1764.

As we’re always fascinated by people’s ancestry, here is a very interesting newspaper article from 1894 that reports on a visit to San Francisco by Fletcher Christian’s gg-grandson, Henry Christian.

Read our blog post about Fletcher Christian which contains an early newspaper report (from March 1790) about the mutiny on HMS Bounty.
