      An explorer for the Muscovy Company, Henry HUDSON failed to open a northeast passage to China on expeditions in 1607 and 1608. A log written by John PLEYCE, a cremember on the 1607 voyage, includes the following entry:
      "Anno 1607, Aprill the nineteenth, at Saint Ethelburge, in Bishops Gate street, did communicate with the rest of the Parishoners these persons, seamen, purposing to goe to sea four days after, for to discover a passage by the North Pole to Japan and China. First, Henry Hudson, master. Secondly, William Colines, his mate. Thirdly, James Young. Fourthly, John Colman. Fiftly, John Cooke. Sixtly, James Beubery. Seventhly, James Skrutton. Eightly, John Pleyce. Ninthly, Thomas Baxter. Tenthly, Richard Day. Eleventhly, James Knight. Twelfthly, John Hudson, a boy."
      Losing support of the Muscovy Company, he sailed in the Half Moon for the Dutch East India Company in 1609, discovering the Hudson River and ascending it nearly to the present site of Albany, NY. The following year, the Discovery sailed for English sponsors and reached Hudson Bay, Canada. The crew, after wintering on the Bay, mutinied and set Henry HUDSON and eight others, including Henry's son John, adrift on June 23, 1611
