Copeland Islands and Sheriffs Harbour
Depiction of John Ross's ship the Victory trapped in the ice at Sheriff Bay, April 1831. Plate facing p.518 of the Narrative of a second voyage in search of a north-west passage, and of a residence in the Arctic regions during the years 1829 ... 1833, by Sir John Ross (London, 1835). John Ross and his nephew James Clark Ross endured four winters trapped in the Arctic ice on an expedition to find the elusive Northwest Passage. They spent their second Arctic winter at Sheriff Bay, with heavy ice having allowed them to travel only three miles from Felix Harbour, their resting place during the first winter of 1829-30. John Ross was knighted in 1834 following his return to England.
