TRADE TOKEN
On May 2, 1670, a Royal Charter was granted by Charles II to the "Company of Adventurers From England Trading into the Hudson's Bay" (The Hudson's Bay Company). By 1685, ports or forts were established at Rupert River, Moose Factory, Port Albany (later in 1708/09 - Albany Factory), and Port Nelson (later in 1690 - York Factory). The trade carried on at these forts seriously affected French trade to the south. Colonization was not conducted by England during this period of time; however, the Hudson's Bay Company needed a large number of employees. These employees came to the new world as indentured servants of the company.

The men were brought to the new world for 7 to 9 years; coming mainly from Ireland and Scotland (specifically the Orkney Islands). The Cree women of the cohabitated with these men and created what historically was known as the "Half-breeds".....
