Did you know that William Wordsworth attended the same school in Cockermouth as Fletcher Christian – Cockermouth Grammar School? The age difference between them – the poet six years younger than the mutineer – means they would not have been companions; but in later life Wordsworth did help Fletcher’s brother Edward compile a legal case intended to rebut what Captain William Bligh had reported about the Bounty affair.
