William Bligh's House

Mutiny of the Bounty's Captain William Bligh lived here.

Location: 100 Lambeth Road, London

Description: Captain William Bligh (1754-1817) survived a 5,800km vogage in an open boat following the Mutiny on the Bounty, and came to live at what is now 100 Lambeth Road (was called then 3 Durham Place) in 1794, and is buried in St Mary's churchyard.

After a successful career as a Naval Commander, in 1805 he was appointed Captain General and Governor of New South Wales. He left his wife and children at the home in Lambeth, and sailed with his daughter and son-in-law to Australia in February 1806. Once again his fiery temper turned up violent feelings against him, in January 1808 he was again center of a mutiny, led this time by an infantry officer, Major George Johnson. Bligh was imprisoned by the mutineers, and was not freed until 1810. His wife meanwhile was still at Lambeth Road.
