Made four notable voyages: the first, in 1607, for the
Muscovy Company, in search of a north-eastern passage to China; the
second, in 1608, for the same Company, and in search of the same
passage; the third, in 1609, at the expense of the Dutch East India
Company, begun, like the two former, in search of a north-eastern
passage, but changed to a quest of a north-western passage; the fourth,
in 1610, in search of a north-western passage, the expense borne by
three English gentlemen. In his first voyage, explored the coast of
Spitzbergen; in the second, part of Nova Zembla; in the third, the
Hudson River; and in the last, Hudson Strait and part of the bay.
Wintered, 1610-1611, at the foot of James Bay, and on the return voyage
was set adrift with eight companions in a small boat, and never again
heard of. =Bib.=: Asher, Henry Hudson, the Navigator; Read,
