In 1607 Henry Hudson was commissioned by the Muscovy Company. He was to find a shorter route from Europe to Asia. There was a crew of 10 men including his son John.
In the 1500s a baby was born in the Kingdom of England. His name was Henry Hudson.
In 1608 he was commissioned again and made it further, but failed another time due to the thick ice.
Not much is known about his youth but one can only assume that he had a good education because he could read, write and do mathematics.
In the late 1500s, Henry married a woman named Katherine and they had 3 sons. John, Oliver, and Richard.
Unfortunately it was unsuccessful due to ice in the water. But he did discover many whales.
After theses expeditions failed, Henry joined the Dutch in 1609 and had another ship named the Half Moon. Hudson was told to find a Northeast passage to Asia..
He ended up at Nova Scotia where he made trade with the natives and then continued on where he founded the Hudson River.
Despite his instructions he did not listen and ended up trying to find a Northwest passage..
