John Fryer

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

John Fryer was born in Well-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, England back in 1753. Can’t find much about his childhood. In 1787, he was appointed master of a ship. After serving in the Royal Navy he retired in 1812. He died in 1812.

What you may not know about John is that the ship he was appointed master of was the HMAV Bounty. He was a strong critic of Lieutenant William Bligh and the mutiny leader Fletcher Christian. Despite his anger at Bligh, he did not support the mutiny. So, tell me did you know of John before now?

Your day is worthwhile when you make someone smile, so give the free gift of a smile today.

Hello James - I don't recall the name John Fryer but I admit there are more things I seem to forget I knew until a reminder-of-sorts occurs.  Sometimes seemingly out of thin air.

Good morning James,

His role in the movie must have been downplayed as I do not recall him.

Also, I will have to dust the book off and see if I can find him there!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

No I did not know John but I've known thousands of people like him... they can't pick a side and they are critics of both sides. I guess if you eliminate both sides you end up on top James Dray .

The fact that he was a critic of both men made him the perfect choice to become the master of the ship.

I never heard of John Fryer before. As famous as the Mutiny on the Bounty story is, you would think he would have been mentioned.
