In 1607, William Hawkins set sail for India. He commanded the ship ‘Hector’ for the English East India Company, and arrived in Surat in August 1608. Hawkins was able to acquire a footing in the court of Jahangir. In the course of time, he became so intimate with the Mughal Emperor that Jahangir called him the English Khan.
