About Henry Hudson
Henry Hudson was an English navigator and a sea explorer. He is remembered for his efforts at exploring the areas which currently cover Canada and the northeastern United States. As an employee of the Dutch East India Company, he was able to explore areas such as the Hudson River and present-day New York metropolitan area in 1609. He is also credited as the first person from Europe to explore the Hudson Bay and Hudson Strait.
Unfortunately, not much about his family and early life are known. His birth year has been disputed amongst historians. He had a son named John Hudson.
It is reported that in 1611, on Hudson’s last expedition, he wanted to go ahead and explore more lands against the wishes of the majority of his crew who only longed to go back home. They conspired against him to undertake a mutiny. The mutiny resulted in Hudson, his son and seven other people being removed from the ship and put in a smaller boat. He was never seen or heard of after that.
