There are mentions to one John Fryer, a sailing master of the ship The Bounty. John Fryer RN (15 August 1753 – 26 May 1817) was the sailing master on HMAV Bounty, a British vessel made famous by the Mutiny on the Bounty. He had the interesting position of being a strong critic of both Lieutenant William Bligh and mutiny leader Fletcher Christian, even at one time accusing Bligh of favoring Christian. Despite his anger at Bligh, he did not support the mutiny. Fryer was born at Wells next to Sea, Norfolk. After his naval service, he returned to Wells, and his grave in the churchyard is now clearly identified. In 1787, Fryer was appointed Master of the HMAV Bounty, with Christian as Masters Mate. The Bounty's Captain William Bligh on 10 January 1788 put his crew on three watches, giving one of them to Christian; and on 2 March 1788 promoted Christian to Acting Lieutenant. Some have speculated that this was the source of the ill-will that later developed between Fryer and Bligh. However, as a Master, Fryer would never have been promoted to lieutenant at sea. Indeed, he never did become a lieutenant. Wells next to Sea, Saint Nicholas Church, square west tower, a clock and 8 bells, nave with aisles, chancel and south porch.
