In 1610 Hudson was back with the English and set sail on a ship called the Discovery. He discovered a strait in the ocean that led them through the northern waters which became known as the Hudson Strait..
In the later months of 1610, the ship became ice bound in the bay and the crew became stranded.
Hudson and his crew kept going through the strait and until they got to a large bay. This became known as the Hudson Bay...
In 1611, the Discovery was free of Ice and could continue to go back home...but Hudson did not want to.
....His crew then turned against him.
Hudson, his son, and several other loyal men were left in a small boat while the rest of the crew continued back home.
Hudson and the others were never heard of or seen again. Many think that they died from the cold or maybe even starvation.
- A northwest passage was finally discovered by explorer Roald Amundsen in 1906.
- The leaders of the mutiny were Henry Greene and Robert Juet. Neither of them survived the voyage home.
- Hudson's discoveries and maps became valuable to the Dutch and the English. Both countries established trading posts and settlements based on his explorations.
