Born 1565 in England and Died 1611 near the Hudson Bay
Success and failures
In 1609, after two failed voyages, he set out again. He ended up in New York. He had to turn back. On his fourth voyage, again in New York, resources were running low and he was at odds with a lot of his crew. The crew casted Hudson and his son off the ship. People believed he died of the cold or starvation near or in the Hudson bay.
He helped drive European interest in exploring North America. You can find his name in many places, including the Hudson bay and Hudson river.
