The Death of Captain James Cook

Captain James Cook


The son of a farm labourer, James Cook (17281779) was
born at Marton in Yorkshire. In 1747 he was apprenticed
to James Walker, a shipowner and master mariner of
Whitby, and for several years sailed in colliers in the
North Sea, English Channel, Irish Sea and Baltic Sea. In
1755 he volunteered for service in the Royal Navy and was
appointed an able seaman on HMS Eagle. Within two
years he was promoted to the rank of master and in 1758
he sailed to North America on HMS Pembroke. His
surveys of the St Lawrence River, in the weeks before the
capture of Quebec, established his reputation as an
outstanding surveyor. In 1763 the Admiralty gave him the
task of surveying the coast of Newfoundland and
southern Labrador. He spent four years on HMS
Grenville, recording harbours and headlands, shoals and
rocks, and also observed an eclipse of the sun in 1766.

The First Voyage
(1768 - 1771)
In May 1768 Cook was promoted to the rank of lieutenant and given command of the bark
Endeavour. He was instructed to sail to Tahiti to observe the transit of Venus in 1769 and also to
ascertain whether a continent existed in the southern latitudes of the Pacific Ocean. The
expedition, which included a party of scientists and artists led by Joseph Banks, left Plymouth in
August 1768 and sailed to Brazil and around Cape Horn, reaching Tahiti in April 1769. After the
astronomical observations were completed, Cook sailed south to 40S, but failed to find any
land. He then headed for New Zealand, which he circumnavigated, establishing that there were
two principal islands. From New Zealand he sailed to New Holland, which he first sighted in
April 1770. He charted the eastern coast, naming prominent landmarks and collecting many
botanical specimens at Botany Bay. The expedition nearly ended in disaster when the
Endeavour struck the Great Barrier Reef, but it was eventually dislodged and was careened and
repaired at Endeavour River. From there it sailed around Cape York through Torres Strait to
Batavia, in the Dutch East Indies. In Batavia and on the last leg of the voyage one-third of the
crew died of malaria and dysentery. Cook and the other survivors finally reached England in July
1771.

The Second Voyage
(1772 - 1775)
In 1772 Cook, who had been promoted to the rank of captain, led a new expedition to settle
once and for all the speculative existence of the Great Southern Continent by prosecuting your
discoveries as near to the South Pole as possible. The sloops Resolution and Adventure, the
latter commanded by Tobias Furneaux, left Sheerness in June 1772 and sailed to Cape Town.
The ships became separated in the southern Indian Ocean and the Adventure sailed along the
southern and eastern coasts of Van Diemens Land before reuniting with the Resolution at
Queen Charlotte Sound in New Zealand. The ships explored the Society and Friendly Islands
before they again became separated in October 1773. The Adventure sailed to New Zealand,
where 10 of the crew were killed by Maori, and returned to England in June 1774. The
Resolution sailed south from New Zealand, crossing the Antarctic Circle and reaching 7110S,
further south than any ship had been before. It then traversed the southern Pacific Ocean,
visiting Easter Island, Tahiti, the Friendly Islands, New Hebrides, New Caledonia, Norfolk
Island and New Zealand. In November 1774 Cook began the homeward voyage, sailing to
Chile, Patagonia, Terra del Fuego, South Georgia and Cape Town. The expedition reached
England in July 1775.

The Third & Final Voyage
(1776 - 1779 / 1780)

A year later Cook left Plymouth on an expedition to search for the North West Passage. His
two ships were HMS Resolution and Discovery, the latter commanded by Charles Clerke.
They sailed to Cape Town, Kerguelen Island in the southern Indian Ocean, Adventure Bay in
Van Diemens Land, and Queen Charlotte Sound in New Zealand. They then revisited the
Friendly and Society Islands. Sailing northwards, Cook discovered the Sandwich Islands
(Hawaii) and reached the North American coast in March 1778. The ships followed the coast
northwards to Alaska and the Bering Strait and reached 7044N, before being driven back by
ice. They returned to the Sandwich Islands and on 14 February 1779 Cook was killed by
Hawaiians at Kealakekua Bay. Clerke took over the command and in the summer of 1779 the
expedition again tried unsuccessfully to penetrate the pack ice beyond Bering Strait. Clerke died
in August 1779 and John Gore and James King commanded the ships on the voyage home via
Macao and Cape Town. They reached London in October 1780.

British Marines - The Death of Captain James Cook


Kealakekua Bay 14 February 1779
From "Britain's Sea Soldiers" by Col. C. Field, Liverpool, 1924
"Although the killing of Captain Cook by the natives of Hawaii In the Sandwich Islands cannot well come under the category of
either a Naval or Military engagement there was a certain amount of fighting immediately subsequent to his death, and the heroism of
Lieutenant Phillips of the Marines, who instantly avenged its was most conspicuous. Sergeant Ledyard, of the same Corps, who was
also present, and who afterwards became rather a noted traveller, gives a very interesting account of the unfortunate affair. This is
taken from Jared Spark's Memoirs of Ledyard's Life and Travels, published in 1828. The Immediate cause of the fracas in which Cook
met his death was the abstraction of the Discovery's largest cutter by the natives. Upon the loss of the boat being reported, Cook, in
his pinnace with six Marines, and supported by other manned and armed boats, landed at the village of Kowroa for the purpose of
capturing the chief Teraiobu, in order to hold him as a hostage for the return of the stolen boat. Mr. Phillips, the Lieutenant of
Marines, induced him to come out of his hut. He accompanied them, and Cook was trying to persuade him to come on board his boat
to Kowroa, when the crowd of natives who had assembled interposed with a hostile demonstration. 'There was one in particular,'
writes Ledyard, 'that advanced towards Cook in an attitude that alarmed one of the guards who presented his bayonet and opposed
him, acquainting Cook in the meantime of the danger of his situation, and that the Indians in a few minutes would attack him; that he
had overheard the man whom he had just stopped from rushing in upon him, say that our boats which were out in the harbour had
just killed his brother, and that he would be revenged. Cook attended to what this man said, and desired him to shew him the Indian
that had dared to attempt a combat with him, and as soon as he was pointed out, Cook fired at him with a blank. The Indian
perceiving he received no damage from the fire, rushed from without the crowd a second time, and threatened anyone that should
oppose him. Cook, perceiving this, fired a ball which, entering the Indian's groin, he fell, and was drawn off by the rest. Cook,
perceiving the people determined to oppose his designs, and that he should not succeed without further bloodshed, ordered the
Lieutenant of Marines, Mr. Phillips, to withdraw his men and get them into the boats, which were then lying ready to receive them.
This was effected by the serjeant, but the instant they began to retreat, Cook was hit with a stone, and perceiving the man who threw
it, shot him dead. The officer in the boats observing the guard retreat, and hearing this third discharge, ordered the beats to fire. This
occasined the guard to face about and fire, and then the attack became general. Cook and Mr. Phillips were together a few paces in
the rear of the guard, and perceiving a general fire without orders, quitted Teraibou, and ran to the shore to put a stop to it; but not
before being able to make themselves heard, and being close pressed upon by the chiefs, they joined the guard, who fired as they
retreated. Cook, having at last reached the margin of the water, between the fire of the boats, waved with his hat for them to cease
firing and come in, and while he was doing this, a chief from behind stabbed him with one of our iron daggers, just under the shoulderblade, and it passed quite through his body. Cook fell with his face in the water, and immediately expired."
