The Spanish were making a lot of money with their colonies so England wanted to make money too. Sir Walter Raleigh sent people to Roanoke to start a colony but the people disappeared. Then England sent a colony to Jamestown, Virginia and that was successful. Eventually more English people came to the New World and formed colonies in Carolina. The Carolinas later separated into North Carolina and South Carolina.

In 1653, some Virginians settled in what would become North Carolina. In 1663, King Charles II issued a royal charter to eight nobles to settle the area south of Virginia. They created Carolina and included the previous settlement. However, because of internal problems, the crown took over the colony and formed North and South Carolina out of it in 1729.
