Voyage of the Nonsuch : Articles & Resources


The ship, the Nonsuch, sailed from England in 1760 and was loaded with furs at Hudson Bay. This was the start of the Hudson's Bay Company.

This 1968 documentary traces the construction, launching and sailing of the replica Nonsuch built to commemorate HBC's 300 anniversary. The ship is on display at the Manitoba Museum and the original film is available at the Archives of Manitoba in Winnipeg.
