Footnotes

  • Account of the Franklin Search expedition undertaken in 1849, led by Sir Richard Collinson in the H.M.S. Enterprise. "Of the many who had searched for Franklin, Collinson came closest to the place where the expedition had ended. Collinson's addition to geographical knowledge on this Arctic trip was very considerable, and would have been tantamount to the discovery of the north-west passage, had this not been already actually achieved by the men of the Investigator" (ODNB), the second ship on the expedition, captained by Robert Maclure.
