Matthew Flinders
Captain Matthew Flinders was an English navigator and cartographer who led the first round trip to what is now known as Australia. He is also considered the first to use the name Australia to describe the entire continent, including Van Diemen's country, a title he considers "easier to hear" than earlier names like Terra. Australis. Flinders took part in a number of expeditions from 1791 to 1803, the most famous of which was the round trip to Australia and an earlier expedition where he and George Bass confirmed that Van Diemen's Land was an island. Upon his return to England in 1803, Flinders was captured by the French governor of the Isle of France. Although Britain and France were at war, Flinders believed the scientific nature of his work would ensure travel safety, but he was still arrested for over six years.
