“William Kennedy (1814-1890) was born at Cumberland House, Saskatchewan, the son of a Hudson’s Bay Company factor and a Swampy Cree Indian woman. After receiving his education in Scotland he returned to Canada in 1833 to join the Hudson’s Bay Company. For the next thirteen years he served at posts in the Ottawa valley and the remote Ungava peninsula, finally resigning his position in 1846. In 1851, Kennedy was chosen by Lady Jane Franklin to lead the second private expedition to search for her husband, Sir John Franklin, whose ships had vanished into the Canadian Arctic six years earlier. Kennedy"s ship the Prince Albert was equipped with a crew of seventeen men. His second in command was Joseph Rene Bellot, a lieutenant of the French Navy. The expedition set sail from Aberdeen, Scotland in the spring of 1851 and by September had penetrated Lancaster Sound and Prince Regent Inlet, eventually establishing winter quarters at Batty Bay. In February of 1852, Kennedy and his men set out on a remarkable 1,100 mile sledge journey westward to the Boothia region. Although no traces of Franklin were found, the expedition is noted for the discovery of Bellot Strait, a narrow channel marking the northernmost extremity of continental North America."
