    Henry Hudson (c. 1560/70s – 1611?) was an English sea explorer and navigator in the early 17th century. After several voyages on behalf of English merchants to explore a prospective Northeast Passage to India, Hudson explored the region around modern New York City while looking for a western route to Asia under the auspices of the Dutch East India Company. Hudson discovered a strait and a bay on his final expedition while searching for the Northwest Passage. In 1611, after wintering on the shore of James Bay.
