Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
Ben Gunn is an ex-crewman of Captain Flint's who has been marooned three years on the Treasure Island by his crew mates, after his failure to find the treasure without the map. He first appears in the novel when Jim Hawkins encounters him. Ben Gunn treats Jim kindly in return for a chance of getting back to civilization.
Squire John Trelawney is a supporting character from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island. He is a bombastic and excitable landowner who is sought out by the book's heroic protagonist, Jim Hawkins as a sanctuary from pirates who seek the treasure map that has fallen into Hawkins's possession. He bankrolls the expedition to the eponymous Treasure Island, and escapes injury to survive to the story's victorious conclusion; the defeat of the pirates and the safe return to England with the treasure.
