Another Act was the Administrations of Justice Act, this allowed British officials to get away with almost any crime they have done. The colonists called this the ‘’Murder Act’’ because they were worried that the British officials would be able to slaughter crowds without any trial.

Another Act was the Quebec act which simply meant to prevent the colonist’s disturbance from spreading to Canada. They opposed to the special freedom given to citizens of Quebec and to a facility recognizing Roman Catholicism.

Sir Walter Raleigh appointed a man named John White to be the governor of Roanoke. John White brought over one hundred citizens from England into the colony of Roanoke. With the help from a previously befriended Native American named Manteo, who had been taken to England prior to the third expedition to Roanoke, John White helped settle Roanoke.
