The date of birth of Robert Bylot is unknown and most of his early life as well. Robert Bylot was an important European explorer that explored the arctic and made 4 trips to the arctic. In the year 1611 he was first mate on Henry Hudsons boat Discovery. There was a strife between them and Bylot was demoted and then set the Hudson, his son and many other sailors out into the Hudson Bay and they were lost without Bylot's navigation skills to help them. Later after successfully sailing Discovery back to England, he wasn't punished for what he did to Henry Hudson. The next year he went back to Hudson Bay but this time with Sir Thomas Button. When they got to the seperation of Nelson river and the Ocean they stayed there for the winter. In 1613 they travveled further north and then went back to England. In 1615 to 1616 Bylot was the captain of the boat and then discovered that the Hudson Strait did not lead to Asia. In 1616 he and William Baffin discovered Baffin Island and Bay while Bylot got a small island named after. Although Bylot and Baffin shared a role of captains Baffin received most of the credit while the rest of Bylot's life and date of death is unknown.
