French Exploration in Abeyance 1691 to 1729 The period 1691 to 1729 was a time of relative inactivity for exploration in areas of concern to New France and England. The main journeys were out of Louisiana to explore the Mississippi and its tributaries, and, much further north, there were some forays into Hudson Bay conducted or ordered by Henry Kelsey of the Hudson's Bay Company. Nine explorer routes are shown: Le Sueur (1700 to 1701), Bourgmont (1714), Kelsey (1690 to 1692), Stuart (1715 to 1716), De Vincennes (1696 to 1704), Louis Jolliet (1694), De Courtemanche (1704), Kelsey (1719) and Scroggs and Norton (1722). The map also shows the extent of territory known to Europeans and the navigation of all exploration routes in the period 1651 to 1760. The historical names found on the map are derived from contemporaneous maps and written documents of the period. 2017-01-26 Natural Resources Canada NRCan.geogratis-geogratis.RNCan@canada.ca Society and Culturecanadian historyexplorationshistorymap Download the English JP2 File through HTTPJP2 http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6126_french_exploration_in_abeyance_1691_1729.jp2 Download the English ZIP (PDF,JPG) file through HTTPZIP http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6126_french_exploration_in_abeyance_1691_1729.zip Download the French JP2 File through HTTPother http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6126_exploration_francaise_suspendue_1691_1729.jp2 Download the French ZIP (PDF, JPG) File through HTTPZIP http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6126_exploration_francaise_suspendue_1691_1729.zip
