Ivan Roa Christian (31 May 1919 – 1991) was a politician from Pitcairn. He was the Chief Magistrate of Pitcairn Island from 1976 to 1984.[1] As his surname suggests, he is descended from the original mutineers who settled the island, led by Fletcher Christian. He is related to a number of other island leaders, including Charles Richard Parkin Christian, his uncle, and Thursday October Christian II, his great-grandfather. Through his marriage to Verna Young, he is the father of Steve Christian and Brenda Christian.
