A New England skipper, sent out in 1668 by Prince
Rupert and his associates, to Hudson Bay, in command of the Nonsuch,
on a voyage of exploration and trade. Medard Chouart (q.v.) sailed
with him, while Pierre Radisson (q.v.) followed, in 1669, in the
Waveno. Gillam's journal of the voyage is quoted in Joseph Robson's
Hudson's Bay. Made several subsequent voyages to the bay, on behalf of
the Hudson's Bay Company. In 1684 his ship crushed in the ice at the
mouth of Nelson River, and he and several of the crew perished. =Bib.=:
