John Hamilton Moore

John Hamilton Moore (1738-1807) was a navigation teacher and author. He was born in Edinburgh, educated in Ireland, and joined the-Royal Navy at Plymouth.
In 1770 Moore started a Nautical Academy in Brentford, Middlesex.
During the 1700s many people were exploring new lands and establishing trade routes. Chronicles about travel became popular. (A chronicle is an account of facts and events arranged in chronological order).

E.g. by James Cook, Furneaux, Magellan, Drake, Anson, Dampier, Wallis and other great explorers.
