Hanson[edit]

I've converted his lk (to a Dab whose non-compliance with WP:MOSDAB may be designed to give him something that can pretend to be a WP bio) to plain text. I can't imagine why he is mentioned at all.

Here's what the Dab page said abt him, based on one of the refs on the accompanying article:
Lieutenant James Hanson was 2nd officer on the HMS Chatham (1788) during its round-the-world explorations as part of the Vancouver Expedition, 1791-1795. He drowned January 1800.
