Jane Quintal1

Last Edited=16 Apr 2006
     Jane Quintal was born in 1795 at Pitcairn IslandG.2 She was the daughter of Matthew Quintal and Tevarua (?).1
     Jane, having 'strayed from the path of virtue', was so harshly treated by her brother, Arthur, that when she had the opportunity to do so, she left the island. The Captain of a passing vessel, being informed of the matter, and learning of Jane's wish, kindly allowed her passage on his ship. She was taken to the island of Rurutu, where she was most kindly received. One of the chiefs of the island made her his wife, and she eventually became the mother of a numerous family. (Rosalind Young: Mutiny of the Bounty and Story of Pitcairn Island)
An alternate version has Jane leaving Pitcairn in 1826 with a Naval Captain by whom she was
pregnant. Not wanting her, he abandoned her at Rurutu. Alone and pregnant, 'I could not talk to any male creature while single, so I got married!', she recounted. (Silverman: Pitcairn Island).2

George Stewart1

M, #169320, b. 1766, d. 30 August 1791
Last Edited=16 Dec 2005
     George Stewart was born in 1766 at South Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands, ScotlandG.1 He married Peggy (?), daughter of Tippaoo (?), in 1789 at TahitiG.1 He died on 30 August 1791, in the sinking of H.M.S. Pandora.1
     He gained the rank of Midshipman in the Royal Navy, on board H.M.A.V. Bounty.1
     Stewart's father claimed descent from the half-brother of Queen Mary Stuart, to whom she gave possession of the Orkney & Shetland Islands. He (the father) was born and was living on his property on the Island of Ronaldshay (Orkneys), but finding that his family could not enjoy the benefits of being sent to school, moved thence to the town of Stromness where he built a house.
The port was much frequented by shipping, having a very commodious harbour, where homeward bound ships often ducked for shelter. Captain Cook, on his third voyage, was one of these, and it was at this time that Bligh became acquainted with the family. They had been especially kind to him. He was tattooed on his left breast with a star, and on his left arm with a heart and darts.
He was personally recommended by Bligh for inclusion in the Bounty crew. Originally he was signed on as a midshipman, but after several young men of more distinguished families were recruited (Hayward, Hallett, and Heywood), he was reduced to AB. Even though he was demoted on paper, he cntinued to serve as a junior officer (a relatively common practice, and a way that less well-born youths could 'work' their way into the officer ranks...indeed, Bligh himself had taken that route!).
He was one of the four mutineers who voluntarily came on board the 'Pandora' mmediately after it docked to report the mutiny to Captain Edwards. To their somewhat naive surprise, they were immediately placed in irons. Surprisingly, Stewart was never released from his handcuffs, and indeed drowned in chains when the ship sank.1
