A fight between the seamen broke out, one man was killed and the volatile Black Jack was blamed, though there is no concrete proof it was him. Perhaps his next actions were more of an indictment — he fled the scene, stole a small chaser vessel with several other crewmen and took off for the dangerous Recherche Archipelago off Esperance.

Black Jack Anderson was notorious for terrorising shipping off the Great Southern coastline during the 's. His extraordinary story has captivated historians and authors - for over ten years he and his crew escaped capture and made a fortune off stolen seal skins.
King George Sound was then only a trading post - with a general store that acted as purveyor, liquor outlet and community centre. While drinking with his whaling crewmates at the general store one night, a fight between the seamen broke out resulting in the death of a man. It was Black Jack who was held accountable for his death, although there was no evidence to prove him guilty. With the crime of murder held above his head, Black Jack and a few crewmates fled the scene, stole a small chaser vessel and took off towards the Recherche Archipelago.
At the time, the Recherche Archipelago was a dangerous place to sail, with the many reefs and small islands uncharted. The motley crew drifted around before finally settling on Middle Island - the largest island in the Archipelago.
From their base, the crew plundered the passing supply ships on their way to Sydney or Hobart, for over ten years. They amassed quite a fortune - at the time, one seal skin sold for six shillings. His autocratic ways and greed for wealth led to his eventual downfall - he was murdered by his own crew.
