Looking back to the 1500s, the English had been situating settlements in Ireland and used a familiar model in the New World. The early years of Jamestown were difficult for the settlers. The land was hot, humid, and mosquito-infested, and the settlers were mostly aristocrats and artisans that spent much of their time searching for gold. Those who didn’t die on the trip, died once they arrived from diseases and starvation. In 1607, about 3 ships-each holding more than 100 English passengers, arrived on the Chesapeake Bay region of Virginia.
In “Of Plymouth Plantation” by William Bradford, Bradford stated, “. . . that in two or three months time half of their company died, especially in January and February.” This had impacted the colonists because half of the colonists died by diseases brought with them, being infected by scurvy, and from having no type of shelter or other comforts. The colonists barely made it through winter as they had assistance with all necessary aid by the six or seven people who were immune of diseases.
Namely, the colonists were terrible with sanitation; terrible disease was wrought amongst them, these colonists didn’t bring women who were generally better at caregiving, and the list in Document C holds not the label of the farmer; hence, there was no well-grown food. Additionally, the list contains large numbers held to describe the gentlemen’s quantity. The gentlemen were people of wealth and they weren’t used to laboring with their hands. This was detrimental to the survival of the Jamestown colonists. Also, the first settlers brought no apothecary and only one surgeon; the expediency of every medical need, most likely in this case, only grew and ever germinated.
While boarding a ship bound for the Jamestown colony people were full of false hope. When they arrived, they were greeted with death and despair. In 1607 a group of 100 men sailed across the Atlantic in search of riches. They landed in Chesapeake Bay. 110 men then started the first successful colony, Jamestown.
As a result to this situation, he ran away for about a week (p. 180). No father could survive having to look into their children’s eyes being in the same situation Junior’s father is, without building a wall regardless of what type of wall it

The colony 's leader, John White, sailed back to England in the late 1587 since the colony was desperate for supplies and needed help defending against the Native Americans. John 's trip was delayed for three years. Once he returned to Roanoke island in 1590, all men, women, and children had disappeared from the island. White and his search party found the word "CROATOAN" carved into a fence post. White assumed this meant the settlers had moved to a nearby island of that name but the stormy weather prevented White and the others from checking the island.
The workforce of the early colonial period was crucial to the success of the colonies. Without all the effort and hard work that early workers including servants, Indians, and African slaves put into the Americas. This would not the America that people feel so proud of. It all started when the settlement of the English in Virginia took place. Back in the Life was tough for the early Virginia colonists due to high death rates.
