The period 1691 to 1729 was a time of relative inactivity for exploration in areas of concern to New France and England. The main journeys were out of Louisiana to explore the Mississippi and its tributaries, and, much further north, there were some forays into Hudson Bay conducted or ordered by Henry Kelsey of the Hudson's Bay Company. Nine explorer routes are shown: Le Sueur (1700 to 1701), Bourgmont (1714), Kelsey (1690 to 1692), Stuart (1715 to 1716), De Vincennes (1696 to 1704), Louis Jolliet (1694), De Courtemanche (1704), Kelsey (1719) and Scroggs and Norton (1722).
