Ross's objective was to discover, and sail through, a northwest passage via Prince Regent Inlet. R.N., to the Arctic regions : for the discovery of a north west passage, performed in the years 1829-30-31-32 and 33 : to which is prefixed an abridgement of the former voyages of Captns. The expedition made the first "definitive" charts of magnetic declination, magnetic dip and magnetic intensity, in place of the less accurate charts made by the earlier expeditions of Charles Wilkes and Dumont d'Urville. Ross set sail with his nephew, James Clark Ross, in May 1829 on board the reinforced steamer Victory. At Somerset Island they found the wreck of the Fury left by William Edward Parry in 1825 and took on board some abandoned provisions. Ross and his crew spent an incredible four winters in the Arctic. The voyage would turn into a four-year ordeal. On the expedition, Ross discovered the Transantarctic Mountains and the volcanoes Erebus and Terror, named after his ships. The correspondence covers general Arctic exploration with specific mention of the British Naval Northwest Passage Expedition, 1818 (led by Ross), the British Northwest Passage Expedition, 1829-1833 (led by Ross) and the search expeditions mounted by the Admiralty and private individuals for the missing British Naval Northwest Passage Expedition, 1845-1848 (leader Sir John Franklin). It explored what is now called the Ross Sea and discovered the Ross Ice Shelf. In some quarters, according to Barton, anyone who was excessively vain was said to be suffering from "Rossism." The expedition foundered in the ice in 1832. Title. Prince Regent Inlet. These men were heroes – heroes in the highest sense of the word. Their first attempt was blocked by ice in Lancaster Sound and they returned to Fury Beach, spending their fourth winter in the Arctic. The young botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker made his name on the expedition. Sir John Ross, R.N. Although the expedition did not achieve its aim of finding the northwest passage, the men did carry out a good deal of exploring, most of it with the help of local Inuit guides and dog sleds. The expedition was led by a Captain of the Royal Navy, James Clark Ross, who commanded HMS Erebus. Ross's letter to Beaufort commences on 10 July 1829, in the early stages of the expedition, and after a long account of the outward voyage, the passage through Prince Regents Inlet into [7] Their solid construction ideally suited them for use in dangerous sea ice that might crush other ships. . In 1839 he went as consul to Stockholm and returned in 1846. Footnotes. . [1], The botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker, then aged 23 and the youngest person on the expedition, was assistant-surgeon to Robert McCormick, and responsible for collecting zoological and geological specimens. In August they reached Lancaster Sound, where Ross had turned back 11 years earlier. By 1836, Ross had spent eight winters and 15 navigation … [22] The parts were: Hooker gave Charles Darwin a copy of the first part of the Flora; Darwin thanked him, and agreed in November 1845 that the geographical distribution of organisms would be "the key which will unlock the mystery of species". During his four years ’ residence in the Canadian Arctic in search of a Northwest Passage in 1829-33, John Ross wrote a private letter to Francis Beaufort, Hydrographer of the Navy. He thought that a smaller, shallower ship, with an auxiliary steam engine, would have more success than the larger vessels that had been sent to the Arctic. After the embarrassment of his first expedition, in this second voyage Ross traveled to Boothia Peninsula, where he found remnants of Parry's ship 'Fury’. Whaling. The Ross Ice Shelf is marked 'ice barrier'. HMS Terror was commanded by Ross's close friend, Francis Crozier. James Clark Ross was born in London, England, the nephew of Sir John Ross, British naval officer and Arctic explorer, under whom he entered the navy in 1812, accompanying him on Sir John’s first Arctic voyage in search of a Northwest Passage in 1818. A decade earlier they led a smaller party to an Arctic region near where Franklin’s crews landed. His family home was on the shore of Loch Ryan, at Stranraer. In January 1841, the ships landed on Victoria Land, and they proceeded to name areas of the landscape after British politicians, scientists, and acquaintances. Ross’s letter to Beaufort commences on 10 July 1829, in the early stages of the expedition, and after a long account of the outward voyage, the passage through Prince Regents Inlet into As each spring and summer came attempts were made to break free, but they made slow progress. John Ross led a privately funded expedition to find a Northwest Passage, embarking in 1829 on the Victory, a paddle-steamer with boilers fitted by John Braithwaite (an engineer whose locomotive engine Novelty was the first one ever to run a mile within a minute, and was entered into the Rainhill trials). The ships arrived back in England on 4 September 1843, having confirmed the existence of the southern continent and charted a large part of its coastline. On his second expedition, to what is now Canada’s Northwest Territories (1829–33), Ross Ross became a laughingstock and was deeply embarrassed. A friend named Felix Booth, who was the distiller and sheriff of London, sponsored a new Arctic voyage and cont… Both ships stayed at Port Louis, in the Falkland Islands for the winter, leaving in September 1842 to explore the Antarctic Peninsula, where they conducted studies in magnetism, and returned with oceanographic data and collections of botanical and ornithological specimens.[9]. When it became clear that the Victory would remain stuck in the ice for the winter of 1831-32, Ross decided to abandon ship the following spring. Anxious to clear his name and prove that he was still a good sailor, navigator, and observer despite the mistake, Ross asked for another commission, but did not get one until 1829, when he was given command of a small vessel. Sir John Ross (1777-1856) was a British naval officer and Arctic explorer. He also identified the Transantarctic Mountains and the volcanoes Erebus and Terror, named after his ships. The aim was to row to Baffin Bay and meet the whaling fleets there the following year. Ross entered Prince Regent Inlet on 11 August 1829, and sailed south as On May 31, 1831, Ross located the position of the north … Ross discovered the "enormous" Ross Ice Shelf, correctly observing that it was the source of the tabular icebergs seen in the Southern Ocean, and helping to found the science of glaciology. It presented an extraordinary appearance, gradually increasing in height, as we got nearer to it, and proving at length to be a perpendicular cliff of ice, between one hundred and fifty and two hundred feet above the level of the sea, perfectly flat and level at the top, and without any fissures or promontories on its even seaward face. The most notable trip found the location, at that time, of the north magnetic pole (since it is estimated the pole moves 40 km per year in a north-west direction). Second Wilkins- Hearst Antarctic Expedition 1928-1930. This chapter focuses on the voyages of exploration by John Ross in 1818 and John Franklin in 1819. Knt. Ross and his men were stuck in the ice for four consecutive years, using their time with mapping, hunting, skills from the local Inuit and scientific inquiries, one of which discovered the North Magnetic Pole. [15], The expedition's zoological discoveries included a collection of birds. [11], Ross called this the Great Icy Barrier, now known as the Ross Ice Shelf, which they were unable to penetrate, although they followed it eastward until the lateness of the season compelled them to return to Tasmania. It was d… He was not employed again until 1829 when he went on the Felix Booth expedition in command of the ‘Victory’ attempting to find the North-West Passage to the Pacific. The crew went north on foot to Fury Beach– a journey of 300 miles. Ross discovered the "enormous" Ross Ice Shelf, correctly observing that it was the source of the tabular icebergs seen in the Southern Ocean, and helping to found the science of glaciology. Between 1819 and 1827, Ross took part in four Arctic expeditions under Sir William Parry, and in 1829 to 1833, again served under his uncle on Sir John’s second Arctic voyage. Together they planned a search for the Northwest Passage by sailing westward beyond Davis Strait. Ross set sail with his nephew, James Clark Ross, in May 1829 on board the reinforced steamer Victory. During John Ross’s arctic expedition of 1829-33 in search of a northwest passage, approximately 1000 km of new coastline was mapped. 1829–33; compiled principally from the evidence of Captain Ross . Included in these new coastlines was Lord Mayor Bay on eastern Boothia Peninsula, which was surveyed by Ross’s nephew and second-in-command, John Ross's second North-West Passage expedition 1829–33, John and James Clarke Ross North-West Passage expedition 1829–33, The next expedition to search for the North-West Passage, An introduction to North-West Passage exploration, John Ross's first attempt to find the North-West Passage, William Edward Parry's final attempt to find the North-West Passage. After volunteering for the Royal Navy at the age of nine and rising to the rank of Commander in the Napoleonic Wars, Ross led an 1818 expedition in search of the Northwest Passage. Between 1829 and 1833 Ross spent another four and one half years exploring the Arctic, achieving the rank of commander. [4][5] McCormick had been ship's surgeon for the second voyage of HMS Beagle under Captain Robert FitzRoy, along with Darwin as gentleman naturalist. Both Parry (in 1819-20 and 1821-23) and Ross (in 1829-33) made further unsuccessful attempts to find a passage. nary courage, Ross was knighted and made a Commander of the Order of the Bath in 1834 and was further honoured by various geographical societies. The Franklin expedition disappeared in the High Arctic in the 1840s, looking for the North-West Passage. [6], The expedition was made in two unusually strong[7] warships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror.

[18] Ross did not reach the Pole, but did infer its position. Among the expedition's biological discoveries was the Ross seal, a species confined to the pack ice of Antarctica. Could the Inuit have saved Franklin’s crews? The Victory wintered for the first time at Felix Harbour, where it was blocked in by ice. John Ross (1800-62) British polar explorer and naval officer. He also headed two later, privately funded, voyages of exploration in 1829-1833 and 1850. It totalled six volumes (parts III and IV each being in two volumes), covered about 3000 species, and contained 530 plates figuring in all 1095 of the species described. The Ross Sea (named after James Clark Ross) is marked on this 1909 map of Shackleton's Antarctic expedition towards the South Pole. Other Arctic expeditions had lost far fewer lives, e.g. Ross was born in London, the nephew of Sir John Ross, under whom he entered the Royal Navy in 1812, accompanying him on Sir John's first Arctic voyage in search of a Northwest Passage in 1818. Ross Arctic Expedition 1829-1833 (Victory) Scottish National Antarctic Expedition 1902-1904. "[24], Hooker's Flora Antarctica remains important; in 2013 W. H. Walton in his Antarctica: Global Science from a Frozen Continent describes it as "a major reference to this day", encompassing as it does "all the plants he found both in the Antarctic and on the sub-Antarctic islands", surviving better than Ross's deep-sea soundings which were made with "inadequate equipment". Why did the Franklin expedition fare so badly? A friend named Felix Booth, who was the distiller and sheriff of London, sponsored a new Arctic voyage and cont… The other pictures on this page are from John Ross's book about the Rosses' Arctic expedition of 1829-1833. The Ross expedition was a voyage of scientific exploration of the Antarctic in 1839 to 1843, led by James Clark Ross, with two unusually strong warships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror. This time the voyage pushed on and headed south into Prince Regent Inlet. In 1829 Thomas Blanky signed up for his third Arctic discovery voyage, under the command of Captain John Ross. Anxious to clear his name and prove that he was still a good sailor, navigator, and observer despite the mistake, Ross asked for another commission, but did not get one until 1829, when he was given command of a small vessel. [13] Both the Erebus and the Terror would later be fitted with steam engines and used for the 1845–1848 Franklin expedition to the Northwest Passage, in which both ships (and all crew) would ultimately be lost. [12] The Ross expedition was the last major voyage of exploration made wholly under sail. The experience of John and James Ross is instructive. Hooker later became one of England's greatest botanists; he was a close friend of Charles Darwin, and became director of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew for twenty years. Shipping. [16][17], The main purpose of the Ross expedition was to find the position of the South Magnetic Pole, by making observations of the Earth's magnetism in the Southern hemisphere. The British Admiralty had no interest in backing the voyage after Ross’s previous failure, so Felix Booth, a gin magnate, supplied the funding. Shackleton- Rowett Expedition 1921-1922 (Quest) Transglobal Expedition 1979-1982. In August they reached Lancaster Sound, where Ross had turned back 11 years earlier. During this trip they located the position of the North Magnetic Pole on June 1, 1831 on the Boothia Peninsula in northern Canada. [2][20][21], The expedition was the first to describe the Ross seal, which it found in the pack ice, to which the species is confined.[15]. The 372-ton Erebus had been armed with two mortars – one 13 in (330 mm) and one 10 in (250 mm) – and 10 guns. Ross became a laughingstock and was deeply embarrassed. This time the voyage pushed on and headed south into Prince Regent Inlet. He did not return until 1833. . . [2][3] Thomas Abernethy, who had been on previous Arctic expeditions with Ross, was gunner. Astonishingly, as Edinger recounts, the expedition of 1829-1832 was not to be John Ross's last. [15] He also identified the Transantarctic Mountains and the volcanoes Erebus and Terror, named after his ships. Accompanied William Parry (1790-1855) on Arctic expeditions in 1819-1827. The following August, a second attempt was made and in a twist of fate the crew was rescued by the ship Ross had used on his 1818 voyage, the whaler Isabella. He made his first voyage to the Arctic in 1818 on an expedition in search of the Northwest Passage, followed by four Arctic expeditions under Sir William Parry between 1819 and 1827. Mount Erebus, on Ross Island, was named after one ship and Mount Terror after the other. It was throughout "splendidly"[22] illustrated by Walter Hood Fitch. Space Exploration . During this time Ross’s crew made several overland expeditions, clarifying the geography of the Boothia Peninsula and King William Island. Both were bomb ships, named and equipped to fire heavy mortar bombs at a high angle over defences, and were accordingly heavily built to withstand the substantial recoil of these three-ton weapons. Led an Arctic expedition 1829-1833, an Antarctic expedition 1839-1843, and the Franklin search expedition of 1850. [8], In September 1839, the Erebus and the Terror departed Chatham, arriving at Tasmania (then known as Van Diemen's Land) in August 1840. 1829–33 Royal Navy expedition led by John Ross to search for the Northwest Passage discovered James Ross Strait and King William Land, located the magnetic north pole at 70°05′N 96°44′W / 70.083°N 96.733°W / 70.083; -96.733 Between 1819 and 1827, Ross took part in four Arctic expeditions under Sir William Parry, and in 1829 to 1833, again served under his uncle on Sir John's second Arctic voyage. Sailing from London in the small steamer Victory with James Clark Ross as second-in-command, the expedition entered Lancaster Sound in August 1829, ... John Ross and James Clark Ross, A.W. In 1818 Ross led an expedition to search for the northwest passage. The expedition was the last major voyage of exploration made wholly under sail. In 1829-1833 he again served under his uncle in the Arctic. On 21 November 1840 they departed for Antarctica. Ross thus led credence to the false idea that King William was an extension of Boothia, whereas in fact it was an island. Here they set about repairing the Fury’s boats, which had been abandoned by William Edward Parry in 1825. Ross returned to a hero’s welcome and was knighted, having demonstrated - like Franklin - the will to survive in extraordinary circumstances. Between 1819 and 1827 he joined Edward Parry in four more expeditions to the Arctic. The expedition's botanical discoveries were documented in Joseph Dalton Hooker's four-part Flora Antarctica (1843–1859). Narrative of the recent voyage of Captain Ross to the Arctic regions, in the years 1829-30-31-32-33, and a notice of Captain Back's expedition; with a preliminary sketch of polar discoveries, from the earliest period to the year 1827. The following summer, 1841–42, Ross continued to survey the "Great Ice Barrier", as it was called, continuing to follow it eastward. Engraving. Ross commanded the ship, Isabella on his expedition, along with a second ship, Alexander, commanded by William Edward Parry. Ross joined the navy at age 11 under the tutelage of his uncle Sir John Ross. Why was Ross keen to restore his reputation by finding the North-West Passage? The last voyage of Capt. Speculations were plenty, but there was little hard evidence to provide a firmer basis for theories. James Ross Clark’s expedition in the same area from 1829-1833 with only three lives lost. Partly to redeem his reputation Ross proposed to use a shallow-draft steam ship to break through the ic… The expedition left England in May 1829 with a complemen 23 officert ofs and crew aboard the expedition ship Victory (150 tons), with a small launch Krusenstem (16 tons) in tow. to the Arctic regions [microform] : for the discovery of a north west passage; performed in the years 1829-30-31-32 and 33 : to which is prefixed an abridgement of the former voyages of Captns. The last voyage of Capt. [23], In 1912, the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen wrote of the Ross expedition that "Few people of the present day are capable of rightly appreciating this heroic deed, this brilliant proof of human courage and energy. Shipbuilding. In 1819 William Edward Parry, his lieutenant on the previous expedition, returned to the Arctic, and sailed 600 miles west beyond the "Crocker Hills", thereby discovering the main axis of the Northwest Passage. The old captain, now knighted and showered with honors by all the crowned heads of Europe, took temporarily to a sort of retirement. He had wrongly claimed that Lancaster Sound was enclosed by mountains and was keen to restore his reputation. When his proposal to the Admiralty to send a steam vessel on an Arctic voyage was rejected, Ross persuaded his wealthy friend, Felix Booth, a gin distiller, to sponsor his British Northwest Passage Expedition, 1829-1833. By September, they had travelled 250 miles further south into the Inlet than any previous expedition. After a long search, contacts with local Inuit revealed they had all perished. Both James and his uncle Sir John Ross persisted in the equally false notion that the "Gulf of Boothia," named by them for their sponsor, Felix Booth (he of Booth's Gin fame), opened out into the waters at the mouth of the Great Fish River. [9] McMurdo Bay (now known as McMurdo Sound) was named after Archibald McMurdo, senior lieutenant of the Terror. [19] Following his second expedition he published Narrative of the second voyage of Captain Ross to the Arctic regions in . The voyage would turn into a four-year ordeal. At the same time, overland expeditions by John Franklin (in 1819-22 and 1825-27), George Back (in 1833-35) and Peter Dease and Thomas Simpson (in … Sir John Ross, Knt. They were described and illustrated by George Robert Gray and Richard Bowdler Sharpe in The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Erebus & HMS Terror. Sir John Ross, British naval officer whose second Arctic expedition in search of the Northwest Passage, the North American waterway linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, located the north magnetic pole. Explorer John Ross first voyaged to find the North-West Passage – the seaway through the Arctic, linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans – in 1818. After a failed attempt in 1818, John Ross returned to the Arctic to search for the North-West Passage with his nephew James Clark Ross in 1829. In some quarters, according to Barton, anyone who was excessively vain was said to be suffering from "Rossism." John Ross was born in Balsarroch, West Galloway, Scotland, on 24 June 1777, the son of the Reverend Andrew Ross of Balsarroch, Minister of Inch in Wigtownshire, and Elizabeth Corsane, daughter of Robert Corsane, the Provost of Dumfries. Biography Arctic exploration. The letter, reproduced here, provides valuable historical insights into many aspects of Ross’s character and of the expedition … Textiles. The expedition inferred the position of the South Magnetic Pole, and made substantial observations of the zoology and botany of the region, resulting in a monograph on the zoology, and a series of four detailed monographs by Hooker on the botany, collectively called Flora Antarctica and published in parts between 1843 and 1859.
