By Andrew Kirkland
King Henry VII of England sent John Cabot out to Canada in 1497, sailing a ship called the Mathew. Cabot went to the Canadian Coastline and named many of its islands.
n 1483, Cabot went to Bristol, England. He thought that Asia could be reached by sailing west. In 1493, when the word of Columbus' successful journey/trip to the New World arrived, Cabot made King Henry VII think that England did not have to wait and sit the Spaniards helped themselves to the New World.
Over 500 years ago, John Cabot is known as the first person to find North America while looking for a shorter route to Asia.
They looked for treasures like pearls and gold along the Northern coast of South America and in Gulf of Uraba. They had to abandon/leave their ship in Hispaniola.
He tried to make a living as a farmer, but he was not very good at it.
They turned the king against him. He was arrested, convicted of treason, and beheaded in January 1519
Balboa was the first European to see the eastern shore of the Pacific Ocean, on September 13, 1513.
He claimed the Pacific Ocean and all its shores for Spain.
Columbus had been promised by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella that any lands he found would be his to take care of and when he died, his son would have that right.
They discovered that the Calusa were an unfriendly tribe. The explorers fled back to their ships and decided to leave the area. They sailed back to Puerto Rico.

He was a Spanish explorer and soldier who was the first European to set foot in Florida. He also created the oldest European settlement in Puerto Rico and found the Gulf Stream.
Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer who sailed/went across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492, wanting to find a route to India. He made four trips to the Caribbean and South America
Felipa's father was Bartolomeu Perestrello, an explorer who had been involved with the discovery of the Madeira Islands (Bartolomeu Perestrello died when Felipa was a young girl)

"I traveled to Greece and Portugal, and I became a sailor in my early teens. In 1476, I was a crewman on a ship that was attacked by French pirates. I was lucky and found a piece of what was left of the ship. Fortunately, I was able to swim the six miles to shore."
Christopher Columbus wife Felipa died of consumption.
Guided by the same two Native Americans he had seized, Cartier explored the St. Lawrence
With 61 men two ships, Cartier explored the St. Lawrence Bay
He failed to find enough French colonists willing to give up the advantages of home for the New World, Roberval asked his government for help. They met his needs by freeing from prison anyone willing to join the expedition.
