The Adventures of John Cabot By: Brendan Hayek, Stacey Hoogerheyde and Nick Iacobelli Born in Genoa, Italy, as Giovanni Caboto. Cabot started our as a Venice merchant. When he moved
to England in 1490 he continued as a wealthy merchant. The Mathew Cabot paid a visit to Mecca, and learned that the goods sold there came from north-eastern Asia. Confident he knew a faster travel route, he relocated his family to London, to test his theory. Its crew of 18 included Cabot's son, Sebastian. Cabot received a charter to
claim new land for England charter Cabot left Bristol, England, on May 2, 1497. He traveled a route much farther north than what Columbus took. Cabot reached land After six weeks at sea.
He landed somewhere in present day Canada.
(possibly Nova Scotia or Newfoundland) He explored the land,
thinking it was China. King Henry VII agreed to give Cabot a ship,
called "the Matthew". Cabot returned to England and told Henry VII about (what he thought was) China. Henry VII was impressed and paid for Cabot's second voyage. For Cabot's Second voyage, he had a crew
of 300 and a total of 5 ships. Cabot set sail in May 1497. Five years after Columbus came to America,
Cabot, inspired by Columbus, wanted to find
the Northwest Passage. Cabot crossed the Atlantic and explored all the
way from present-day Greenland to North Carolina. vc Cabot never found the Northwest passage. John Cabot, very disappointed, didn't find any gold or spices. Instead he found rich cod-fishing grounds off Newfoundland. Cabot's journeys did however lead to
great wealth in England, later on. The End of Cabot's second voyage is a mystery. Some historians believe that Cabot returned
to England and disappeared from history. However, most historians believe Cabot and his crew
sunk during a storm off the coast of Newfoundland. John Cabot's voyages were important because they gave
England claim over North America's mainland. This claim led to the founding of the English colonies in the early 17th century.
