Where did John Cabot first set sail?

John Cabot discovered the island of Newfoundland on June 24, 1497. Many people believe he landed at Cape Bonavista. Records from that time show that Cabot may also have landed on the shores of Labrador. John Cabot was born in Genoa, Italy around the year 1450. He worked as a trader in what is now called the Middle East. He moved to England in 1484. He had heard about the riches of China and wanted to explore the world. In 1496, King Henry VII gave Cabot the right to discover new lands. Cabot set sail that year. He had to turn back because of bad weather and no food. Cabot began his second trip on May 2, 1497. He sailed from Bristol, England in his ship, The Matthew. Cabot never got to China by sea. He found Newfoundland and its fishery. Some people say Cabot used a basket to dip fish from the sea. Cabot was paid cash for discovering Newfoundland. He was also given a pension. He only collected that pension once. It is believed he drowned at sea. In 1997, Newfoundland and Labrador will celebrate the 500th anniversary of John Cabot's landing in Newfoundland. Special events will be held across the province. Organizers plan to make 1997 a Come Home Year. Family and friends who have moved away will be invited to come home to help celebrate. The government planned to put up a building to mark the anniversary. It was to be called the Caboto Building. The job was cancelled by the provincial government because of a lack of money. The Cabot Tower was built on Signal Hill in St. John's in 1897. It was built to mark the 400th anniversary of Cabot's discovery.
