Ironically the English were not the first people to arrive but they were the first to settle because it was intended to bring great wealth for the people investing in London and "recreating English society in North America". Jamestown, Virginia is around 30 miles up the James River from the Atlantic Coast. The Indians did not believe this area was very habitable but the English men believed it did just fine. It helped the economis develop because it was the only site located along the York and James rivers. They would not hunt or fish but they would set sail and come back with loads and loads of corn. Jamestown was a royal government and colony.
