Valentine Starbuck

re Valentine Starbuck

I have a journal kept on board the ship in which Valentine Starbuck was when he discovered Starbuck Island....and it shows they named and clamied it as Volunteer Island.

Does anyone know any family connections of Valentine or indeed origins? I lose him in court in London about 1826 when he was arraigned for mishandling his whaling voyage. He then vanishes. I know he was married but who to? Did he have descendants etc etc?

The Obed Starbuck alleged to be his cousin is all we seem to know and this does not yet check out.

The smallest help would be appreciated...Thank you
