Hudson was believed to be born in England in 1565. He allegedly was one of 5 kids. Nobody knows if this is 100% accurate, however.
Hudson and his crew got trapped in ice on the fourth journey and were forced to spend the winter stuck there. Hudson's crew got mad at him and sent Hudson along with a few others on a small boat by themselves. They were never seen again.
Hudson worked as a cabin boy as a child so he received lots of experience at sea.
Please fund me for another journey. I will find the passage.
The Muscovy Company (England), denied Hudson to go on a third journey, so he went to the Dutch East India Company where they funded him. The Muscovy Company ended up funding him for the fourth journey.
Yet again, another wrong route.
Hudson was blocked by ice on his first three journeys and was forced to return home. The English and the Dutch kept believing in him, and he kept being sent on more journeys.
Now we will die and never find the Northwest Passage
Today, Henry Hudson has a river, a bay, a high school, a bike trail, and more named after him.
