Re: Captain William Bligh

Classification: Query
Yes my connection to the late Admiral William Bligh comes from the Rev Horace Nutting who married Bligh's daughter so Capt Bligh is my great, G, G, etc grandfather, my grandfather being Louis Walter Bligh Nutting. I do have a family tree that goes back to Robert the Brtuce of Scotland through the Campbell Family which we are related too and it was this family that got Capt Bligh the job of going to take Breadfruit to the west indies, also through the campbell connection he met Elizabeth Bentham and she in turn had good connections in the royal family.

I can send you a copy of the family tree to your private email.

yours Sincerely

Michael Charlesworth Bligh Nutting
