Narrative of a voyage to the South Seas and the shipwreck of the Princess of Wales cutter,

with an account of two years residence on an uninhabited island by one of the survivors


Charles Medyett Goodridge of Paignton, Devon

(2nd ed.) Exeter: W.C. Featherstone (1838) plate, 181pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Rev Sabine Gould affered that the record of Goodridge's adventures is fully as interesting as the fictitious story of Robinson Crusoe and well deserved republication. It was first published in Exeter in 1837. Two editions of a thousand copies each were exhausted, and a third was published in 1839, and a fourth in 1841. George Medyett Goodridge was born at Paignton on 22 May, 1796. At the age of 13 he hired himself as cabin-boy on board the Lord Cochrane, an armed brig, stationed off Torquay to protect the fishing craft from French cruisers. From that time till 1820 he was continually at sea; until 1 May, he joined the Princess of Wales on a seal hunt. His extraordinary adventures continued until he returned to Torbay and his home in Paignton in 1831. A 'ripping yarn'.
