British naval officer William Robert Broughton (1762–1821) was the commander of the H.M.S. Providence (400 tons).

When the Providence was shipwrecked near Ryukyu, he sailed the coast of the East Sea on an 87-ton schooner, arriving at Busan.

After bringing the schooner to anchor at Busan Dongnae Yongdangpo, he created a nautical chart during his one-week stay.

Later in England, he published the chart along with an account of his exploration.
