RICHARD I. RUGGLES Department of Geography, Queen's University
The following were also Hudson's Bay Company traders: George Atkinson, Jr, Alex Brand, Thomas Buchan, John Clarke, James Clouston, John Isbister, Thomas Isbister, George Jackman, Christoper Norton, William Pink, James Robertson, William Robinson, William Stewart, William Tomison, Joseph Waggoner. Joseph Frobisher and Thomas Frobisher were Montreal traders.
The originals of the maps by Thornton, Coats, Norton, and Graham are in the HBC Archives, PAM. The map attributed to Dobbs, actually the work of Joseph La France, appeared in Arthur Dobbs, An Account of the Countries Adjoining to Hudson's Bay in the North-West Part of America... ( London, 1744). The depictions of explorers' routes and of territory explored are largely based on extensive research in the HBC Archives, particularly in the correspondence (A5, A6, A 10, A11), in the post journals and letters between posts (B3/a and B3/b), and in the map collection. Much use has also been made of the map collection at the PAC.
