The Spanish Armada (1588).

The Spanish were about to attack England and all English ships were kept back by Queen Elizabeth I for the defense of England. White could not return to Roanoke until 1590, and found that the colony, including his daughter and granddaughter, had disappeared.

Roanoke Island, in what was then considered Virginia but is now North Carolina, was the first English settlement. Unfortunately, none of the colonists survived. Jamestown VA was the first permanent colony. The first English colony in North America was established on Roanoke Island in 1585, in what is now North Carolina. A second colony, the so-called Lost Colony, was established two years later, but vanished. A third colony was established at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607.
