Firstly, they were not "American Colonies" at the time. They were bush and wilderness. Nobody laid claim to the land. The first settlers were religious fundamentalists, who left Great Britain to be able to practice their own oddball form of religion, called Puritanism. They could be compared to the …current crop of religious right wingers in the USA. They had little practical knowledge of how to survive in North America, and if it were not for the Aboriginals, they would have died of starvation during the first winter. What is now called " Thanksgiving" should really be called " we were really lucky to survive the first winter here". The Puritans made a number of huge errors as they tried to re-create England in North America, in both the way they tried to farm the land and how they built their homes. They were too stubborn to adopt the proven methods of the Aboriginals when it came to living here. It is a wonder they survived at all. Later they came to make money from plantations. EXPANDED ANSWER : In 1587 the first settlers came to Roanoke Island in what is now North Carolina. They were not religious fundamentalists. The colony failed and the survivors left the island. It is not known where they went or what happened to them although there is a strong case that at least some of them went to the Chesapeake Bay area (in Virginia, where they were supposed to go in the first place) and were later massacred by Powhatan. There is also some speculation that at least seven escaped and were later enslaved by a local tribal group. FULL ANSWER: Colonists came to North America for a variety of reasons. The most common answer given would be for religious reasons, and this was the case for many non-Anglican religious groups who were persecuted in England - these groups included the Puritans of New England, the Quakers of Pennsylvania, and the Catholics of Maryland. However, they also came over seeking wealth, as was the case in Virginia and the Carolinas, where tobacco, sugar cane, cotton, and other cash crops were grown and sold to England. There were also a variety of other natural resources to be had in North America, not the least of which was timber and fur, both of which were difficult to find in England. Debtors that had been placed into prisons because of their debt were sent to Georgia, where they also made a convenient blockade between the Spaniards in Florida and England's wealthy plantation communities to the north.

If you mean the American colonies by English settlers it was for a few reasons. The primary reason was more space, but secondary reasons also included religious freedom and wealth hunting.
Native Americans, often erroneously called "Indians," are believed to originate from Asia (which is EXTREMELY theoretical). Some people think that their "ancestors" crossed over the land bridge between Russia and the Americas many millenia ago (even though the terrain would have been extremely horre…ndous and barren and no animals for hunting migrate from west to east in that area). Non-native Americans come from all over the world. The majority have European ancestry, meaning at some point a distant relative came to the US from Europe. But America is called a "melting pot" because there are people here from every nation on earth. ( Full Answer )
The most popular theory among scientists is that they migrated from Asia northward through Eastern Russia, then over a land bridge that appeared, then disappeared -twice.
If you mean the Indians, they came from Asia (probably somewhere near Mongolia)- via the Bearing Straights.

Peru is the Latin American country from which Paddington Bear originally comes. His Aunt Lucy goes into the Home for Retired Bears in Lima, Peru.

In fact, the bear ty…pe upon which Paddington Bear is modeled is the Andean or Spectacled Bear [ Tremarcotus ornatus ] of Peru. ( Full Answer )
Native Americans crossed the land bridge to North America from Asia. So technically they are from Asia.
The Great Britain controlled most of them, but the Dutch had what is now New York for a long time.
There were 13 of them: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and New Hampshire.
There are different theories out there, people use to believe Native Americans came during the last ice age, when the sea level was low enough that there was a land bridge between Siberia and Alaska. The ancient Siberians, related to the Mongolians, Chinese, Koreans, etc. crossed this land bridge in…to Alaska. Over the centuries, they migrated south to completely cover the continents of North and South America.. Another theory has it that Native Americans came by boat across the Pacific, not in a single journey but rather island hopping, populating one island after another, Hawaii for example is already halfway from Asia to North America.. As for the Inuits that came separately at a later time, they are believed to have crossed the Bering Strait by an ice bridge where the water freezes to a point where it can be walked on allowing one to walk from Asia to North America. Inuits are originally from Siberia and resemble modern Chinese. Their people have spread out from Siberia to Alaska, Northern Canada and Greenland. Native Americans however are consider to be cousins of Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, etc., but are still categorized under the same race as them as Mongoloids. Native Americans have closer resemblance to Pacific Islanders than they do with East Asians, whereas Inuits resemble East Asians.. On a side note, the last crossing of the ice bridge between Asia and North America was in 2006 by a Briton and a French American, walking for fifteen days from Alaska to Russia.. Note: There are many evidences that support these theories such as irrefutable DNA analysis. Even today, Native Americans are classified as Mongoloids along with their East/Southeast Asian cousins. An Irish man is a Caucasoid, and a African is a Negroid. To make comparison between Native Americans to East/Southeast Asian as to Irish and African is absurd. Furthermore to be more proper, if you were to make any sort of comparison, it should be European to Middle Easterner, rather than comparing a single group of European when there are so many and compare it to a whole another race. To answer a few more absurd questions by the previous poster:. 1) In reference to so called white Indians in Quebec if there is such a thing. Not being able to trace their ancestry back to any Europeans does not amount to anything. How many East Europeans trace their ancestry back to Mongolia? These Indians could simply have mixing from the Vikings.. 2) In reference to Native Americans actually came from America itself because their myths said so is absolutely absurd. Native Americans didn't realize there were people in other continents in those ancient days or else their myths would also add that they migrated to Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia and populated those lands. Everything comes from somewhere, whether you're atheist or creationist. Apples came from China, horses came from Europe, etc. ( Full Answer )
1653, probably a back-formation of origination (1647), from M.Fr. origination, from L. originationem (nom. originatio), from originem (see original).
