George Hunn Nobbs 1799 - 1884. Chaplain on Pitcairn and Norfolk Island by Raymond Nobbs. Hardcover, 1st edition 1984, 160 pages, black and white photos.

Nobbs's arrival on Pitcairn was providential for the community, arresting the demoralization and disintegration which followed the patriarchal rule of John Adams. He served the islanders with singleminded devotion both on Pitcairn and Norfolk, advising and guiding successive generations as they changed from a small adolescent and unsophisticated family to an adult community able to face the increasing pressures from the outside world with assurance. Though on Pitcairn he had to face criticism from island factions, especially from Hill's supporters led by Edward Quintal, and on his arrival at Norfolk from Bishop Selwyn, he received the constant support and friendship of Moresby and Rev. T. B. Murray, secretary of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, and in his declining years enjoyed the honour and respect of the entire community.
