My name is Samuel Champlain. I was born on August 13,1574
Samuel Champlain was born on August 13, 1574. He is born to Antoine Champlain and Marguerite Le Roy, in either HiersBrouage, or the port city of La Rochelle, in the French province of Aunis. He sailed for 17 years starting in 1603 and ended in 1620.
I can't wait to set out for the sea!
Champlain set out on May 27 to continue his exploration of the Huron country and in hopes of finding the "northern sea" he had heard about which was probably the Hudson Bay. Along the way, he apparently dropped or left behind a cache of silver cups, copper kettles, and a brass astrolabe dated 1603
I have accomplished my goal!
Champlain established the city of Quebec in the northern colony of New France, and mapping the Atlantic coast and the Great Lakes, before settling into an administrative role as the de facto governor of New France in 1620. He died on December 25, 1635, in Quebec.
