Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Captain George Vancouver (1757-1798) was a member of the second British exploratory voyage led by Captain James Cook (1828-1779), and was also aboard the Discovery, which accompanied the Resolution on Cook’s third voyage. In 1791 Vancouver was given command of the ship the Discovery (named in honor of Cook) to chart the Pacific Northwest coast and to help resolve the crisis precipitated by John Meares at Nootka. He remained on the coast or in the Sandwich Islands for three seasons until he sailed back to England 1795.
