Asked in Colonial America
Why was the colony of the Jamestown established?
The colony of Jamestown was established in 1607 by the British because the British wanted to start their own colony in the new world since there was a cold war ( a fight for who is military strong and who has the most united power) and the British, French, and Spanish werecompetingto own more land in the new world.
Who were the founders of Jamestown?
John Smith was the leader of the immigration to Jamestown in 1607. The immigrants (more than 900 from 1607 to 1609 - though only 60 survived) were mostly young men in their 20s, all looking for profit and individual economic gain, contrasting with the families that would settle Massachusetts later. The Virginia Company sent a variety of artisans to diversify the economy; however, most were not interested in specialized trade-- gold-seekers or unskilled laborers. Some were of criminal backgrounds, who added to the unproductive mix of settlers.
What were some jobs in Jamestown in the 1607?
In 1607 the London Company sent 104 men in three ships to VA to establish a colony. They built a fort on swampy land and within 6 months most of the 104 were dead or sick. Most of the men who came were there to look for riches and gold. They didn't plant crops or prepare to survive the cold winters of VA. The men were a combination of military, outlaws, and gentlemen. Jamestown didn't have "jobs" and was not a true colony but a fort of men who came to get rich.

What was Jamestown like in 1607?
Jamestown Colony in 1607 was probably a pretty scary place for the first men and women who arrived there. They did not at first have sturdy housing, so they lived in tents until housing could be built. The Colonists had to hunt for most of the food they ate. At first, the Native Americans they met were not very friendly. Many people starved during the first winter.

Where was the first English colony in North America?
The first English colony was most likely St. John's, Newfoundland (now in Canada), settled permanently since 1583. However, there are other communities on the island of Newfoundland (such as Harbour Grace) dating from 1583 as well, so the exact first colony is hard to pin-point and has been lost to history. Roanoke Island in what is now North Carolina was settled in 1587, but the colony failed and was "lost". Jamestown, VA was not settled until 1607.
Asked in US Civil War, West Virginia
Who founded the colony of West Virginia?
There was never a colony of West Virginia. West Virginia was a part of Virginia from the time the colony of Virginia was founded at Jamestown in 1607 until 1863. In 1863 the Yankees offered the educational lesson that while it is most definitely NOT acceptable for states to secede from the US, it is perfectly acceptable for part of a state to secede after 256 years and set itself up as a new state, and West Virginia was born, without ever having been a colony or a territory.
