Radison and Groseilliers were a benefit to the English because they both had planned to establish a fur trade based on Hudson Bay. Because of this organization, King Charles II and his cousin Prince rupert claimed the territory and named it Rupert's Land. They now had rights to all the lands drained by all the rivers flowing into Hudosn bay. The HBC posts were located at the ouths of large rivers on the shores of Hudson Bay and James Bay. They relied on the Cree, Assiniboin, and Chippewa for furs. The term Made Beaver means a prime adult beaver fur. It was used to gauge the value of all the other furs.
