In 1610 Hudson managed to get backing for yet another voyage under the English flag; this time the funding came from the Virginia Company[?] and the British East India Company.

 Henry Hudson Explorer of the Hudson River -- By The Half Moon Press
Hudson was certainly an experienced seaman, commissioned by the Muscovy Company in 1607 to find a quick way from England to the "islands of spicery." He failed in that attempt, and again in 1608 -- each time foiled by ice floes as he attempted to find a fast northerly passage to "the east."

Hudson called the river the "River of Mountains" although the Native Americans, with whom the skipper and crew had considerable contact, called it "Muhheakunnuk" (great waters constantly in motion).

Henry VIII's break from the Catholic Church in 1534 had isolated England from most of Europe, and for most of the century threatened war to restore Catholic power - preferably through a subservient Catholic ruler on the throne.
Henry was also not terribly interested in the New World, either, and was more intent on his own quest for an heir than in exploration.
