"Jane, having 'strayed from the path of virtue', was so harshly treated by her brother, Arthur, that when she had the opportunity to do so, she left the island. The Captain of a passing vessel, "Lovely", being informed of the matter, and learning of Jane's wish, kindly allowed her passage on his ship. She was taken to the island of Rurutu, where she was most kindly received. One of the chiefs of the island made her his wife, and she eventually became the mother of a numerous family. (Rosalind Young: Mutiny of the Bounty and Story of Pitcairn Island)
"An alternate version has Jane leaving Pitcairn in 1826 with a Naval Captain by whom she was pregnant. Not wanting her, he abandoned her at Rurutu. Alone and pregnant, 'I could not talk to any male creature while single, so I got married!', she recounted. (Silverman: Pitcairn Island)"
