The Cabots

 

 

 

  The Cabots, John and Sebastian were father and son who were explorers.  They were Irish born, yet worked for England.  In May 1497 the duo went on an expedition together to America. 

This voyage gave England a claim to the main land of North America.  Later colonies of English people were formed and the English-speaking people helped to create the North America we know today.
