Hearne Samuel 1745-1792 Came To Fort Prince Of Wales On The
Hudson's Bay Company's ship Prince Rupert. Under instructions from the
Company, and after two abortive attempts, set forth in December, 1770,
on his memorable journey to the mouth of the Coppermine River, which he
reached in July of the following year. Returning by way of Great Slave
Lake, arrived at Fort Prince of Wales in June, 1772. Two years later
sent to the Saskatchewan, where he built Cumberland House. On his return
in 1775, appointed governor of Fort Prince of Wales, and still in charge
when the fort was captured by La Perouse in 1782. Brief accounts of his
journey published after his return from the Coppermine, and some of his
statements severely criticized by Alexander Dalrymple. The complete
account of the expedition did not appear until three years after his
death. =Index=: (Mackenzie / Selkirk / Simpson era) Sent inland by Hudson's Bay Company, 3; discovers
