William Bligh (1754-1817)

Bligh was a naval officer and governor. He was descended from a family settled in St Tudy, Cornwall, since 1680, whose members had been mayors of Bodmin in the sixteenth century. William was entered in HMS Monmouth on July 1762, was paid off the following February, and joined the navy 27 July 1770.
