Archive.org gives the full text of Narrative of the surveying voyages of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle between the years 1826 and 1836, describing their examination of the southern shores of South America, and the Beagle's circumnavigation of the globe, 1839 which gives you the officers of Beagle on that trip.
