Remarkably little has been written of the early attempts by the English to colonize America between 1497 and 1630. During a period of little more than 100 years, and at the time when Spain and Portugal were attempting to colonize South America, English ships were taking the first colonists to the North American East Coast and setting up the bridgeheads through which increasing numbers of colonists would come to eventually spread across what was to become the United States and Canada.
