America was settled by Europeans who first came to the country in small numbers. The first colony was Jamestown and was founded by the British.
Europeans mainly. But particularly those who were facing difficulty at that time. So many Irish people who were facing a potato famine in the 1800s went to America. In 1862 th…e government made a homestead Act in which you could claim 160 acres of land if you paid $30 after 5 years, the land was almost free. It gave people a chance to start a new life for a very little cost. The American government wanted American to be settled to make it less vulnerable to attack from neighbouring countries. So they created the manifest destiny - that America should be completely settled by white Americans. So people, who were originally only settled in the East of America (mainly from Europe) were encouraged to move West and were tempted by Acts like the one above of 1862. Other things also attracted many people to America. For example gold was found in California in 1848. Many professional miners from Cornwall travelled there in hope of getting very rich. As well as many amateur from all round the world. Also many Chineese went to America because in the 1860s the US government were wanting lots of labourers for the building of the railroad. So they encouraged thousands of Chineese to emigrate there. The Chinese were also drawn to America by the Californian Gold Rush.

You should specify what the groups are. Who are you referring to?
Answer 1 They first came to Perth but then after that most of the Italian community came to Darwin. Today there are more then 50, 000 Italy born people living there. Answe…r 2 As I learned it, the Italians came mainly to the larger cities in Australia - Sydney and Melbourne, especially post-WW2, though eventually favouring Melbourne. Within the two decades 1950's and 60's, a mass Italian migration occurred to the point of 10 times the previous total of Italian-born immigrants! Melbourne being their major target, within Melbourne, they mainly settled in Brunswick and Carlton - moving over to Heidelberg, and basically spreading through northern, north-western and north-eastern Metropolitan Melbourne. So great is the Italian influence in Australia, in fact, that today, Italian is the second most-spoken language within Australian homes!
They usually gathered in groups near Ellis Island in big cities. It's usually where they could find the most work. Italians =]
