Hudson Bay was named after which Hudson, who explored the bay in 1610 on his ship "the Discovery"?

Henry Hudson Hudson Bay was named after which Hudson, who explored<br/> the bay in 1610 on his ship "the Discovery"?
The answer is: Henry Hudson

On this fourth voyage he worked his way around the west coast of Greenland and into the bay, mapping much of its eastern coast. The Discovery became trapped in the ice over the winter, and the crew survived onshore at the southern tip of James Bay. When the ice cleared in the spring Hudson wanted to explore the rest of the area, but the crew mutinied on June 22, 1611, and left Hudson and others adrift in a small boat. No one to this day knows the fate of Hudson and his loyal crew.
