  • Ann Savours

James Weddell is celebrated in polar history for his voyage of 1822–24 during which he penetrated the then unknown Weddell Sea as far as lat. 74° S., in the brig Jane and the cutter Beaufoy. This note sheds light on some other events in his life and records where the source material is to be found.
