Baughan, James (c. 1787–1788)

It is likely that the infant John Bunham mentioned in Surgeon Bowes' journal (and in no other official documents) was James Baughan, the son of John Baughan and Mary Cleaver. He was born during the voyage, baptised after landing at Port Jackson on 27 March 1788 and died the next day.
