Its was uninhabited until 1790 when mutineers of the ship called HMS Bounty discovered the island while they tried to hide from the government. The ship was burned to prevent the ship's detection in what is now called Bounty Bay.



The mutineers remain undetected until 1808 when the sole mutineer was living there called John Adams with Tahitian woman and their children.
