Henry Hudson

Henry Hudson was born in England circa, 1500's. Like Columbus, Hudson was obsessed with finding new routes to Asia but instead, he ended up encouraging further settlement and exploration of North America. Hudson might have many places named after him yet there is very little information about his early life. It is believed that he first learned aboutthe seafaring life from either sailors or fishermen. Whichever one it was, he must've had a talent for it to become a commander in his late 20s. He also may have had a wife, Katherine, and three sons: John, Richard, and Oliver.
