Rewrite required [ edit ]
This article needs a complete rewrite in my opinion. I am going to find some time to make drastic changes, I hope I don't offend anyone. Some examples of problems are:
"Little is known about his life" - according to who? I'm sure there are arctic historians out there who know quite a bit about him.
"he is considered one of the most daring of the early explorers" - again, according to who? No citation. Looks like speculation.
"Perhaps an unfortunate experience with Captain Henry Hudson in 1611 doomed him to relative obscurity." - definitely speculation.
"but nothing is known about his life after that point." - again, according to who?

Also, this article is too close to
http://explorenorth.com/library/bios/bl-bylot.htm, it's practically plagiarism. Zatoichi26 ( talk) 01:25, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I did a complete re-write, I think it looks a lot better now.
