John Dundas Cochrane

a.k.a. Captain John Cochrane

Author Code: EJDC

Born: 1780 - England

Died: Aug. 12, 1825 - Venezuela

Cochrane entered the Royal Navy when he was just 10 years old. He took part in the Battle of San Domingo in 1806 and served as a midshipman on the frigate Ethalion. In 1811, he was commissioned a lieutenant and became a commander in 1814. In 1820, he succeeded in convincing the Admiralty to give him two years' leave of absence on half-pay in order to make his "walk across Russia" with a view to cross from Asia to America via the Behring Strait. He gave up the project when he reached Kamchatka. On his return to England he published A Pedestrian Journey Through Russia and Siberian Tartary to the Frontiers of China, the Frozen Sea and Kamchatka (1823). He then went to South America to undertake various mining enterprises, but died there of a fever in 1825.
