"The Batavia Mutiny" Top 5 Page for this destination W.A. Museum - Shipwreck Galleries Tip by keeweechic


The ship was under the command of Francisco Pelseert and was carrying 300 passengers including women and children when it set sale for Batavia in the East in 1928. There were personal grievances against the Pelsaert. Adrian Jacobsz, the Master together with the Supercargo, Jeronimus Cornelisz plotted a mutiny. Their plan was to slip away from the fleet after leaving the Cape of Good Hope, seize the Batavia and then pirate other richly laden ships bound for the Indies.
