What is the first permanent English settlement in America?

Roanke was settled in 1585-1587, but was found missing later in 1590. With the word "Croaton" carved into a tree. There's also Jamestown founded in 1607. That is still remaining. Either one would work. Most people go by Jamestown, but it is really Roanoke. Well that's what I think( the little twelve year old girl. Nobody listens to us kids!).
