The Venetian explorer John Cabot secured a commission from king Henry VII of England to search for the spice islands by sailing west. In 1497 he sailed his ship the Matthew from Bristol across the Atlantic and landed at Cape Breton Island in Newfoundland which he confidently declared to be an uninhabited part of China.
