The smallest of the three ships which sailed in 1606 to found the Jamestown Settlement, captained by John Ratcliffe. She later took part in six expeditions in search of the Northwest Passage. During the 1610-1611 expedition in the Canadian arctic, the crew mutinied, and set their captain Henry Hudson adrift in a small boat, and he was not seen again. Our picture is of a replica.
