Transcript of john cabot
The Italian word Caboto means “ a coastal seaman" which was a common name given to sailors and navigators.
John Cabot second son Sebastain Cabot also sailed to North America and explored the Eastern coastline.
During Cabot' s second voyage the weather was cold and the journey was made difficult by the icebergs. The crew refused to proceed farther North. Cabot had no choice but to turn South along the coast of Greenland.
There is no records of the date or reason for the death of John Cabot, however king Henry VII continued to pay John Cabot until 1499. Therefore some people think Cabot was not lost at the sea but safely returned to England. Others think the income was just to pay his family.
