Best Answer

Mary Queen of the Scots was beheaded for basically being a Catholic and plotting to kill her Protestant sister Queen Elizabeth I. Being a Catholic in Protestant England was not the best thing. The kings' subjects should be the same religion as the king himself.

What was the bablington plot?

I think you mean the babington plot; a plot in 1586 organized to remove Elizabeth I from power and replace her with Mary Stuart, known as Mary Queen of Scots. The plot involved Catholic support and was uncovered largely by the work of Francis Walsingham, Elizabeth I's spymaster. The plot led to the execution of Mary Stuart in 1587, as Elizabeth finally had clear proof that mary had plotted against her. It can be seen as a (tenuous) cause of the Spanish Armada in 1588.

What happened to the colony in America which Walter Raleigh paid for?

Nobody knows for sure. In 1587 117 men, women and boys (no girls) came to Roanoke Island in what is now North Carolina. In August of that year Governor John White returned to England for supplies. He did not return until 1590 by which time his colonists had left the settlement, leaving only two ambiguous clues as to their intended destination. It is entirely possible that the group fractured into smaller groups - some may have tried to sail back to England, some headed north for the Chesapeake Bay (their original intended destination), some headed south to join friendly native American groups, some headed west into the mainland. Much later there were reports from William Strachey that white people had been living with local native American groups around the Chesapeake. Most of the people had been killed by Powhatan (or his people) and the few who escaped were ultimately caught and enslaved.

What is The first colonization efforts in the new world for the English?

In 1587, Sir Walter Raleigh outfitted a ship with 91 men, 17 women, and 9 children and sent them on their way to the shores of Chesapeake Bay. Strong winds blew the expedition off course and they landed on an island off the coast of what would become North Carolina. The island was Roanoke. The settlers attempted to establish a colony while the ship returned to England for supplies. Three years would go by before a supply ship could return to Roanoke. When Raleigh's agents found the colony, all that was left were abandoned buildings and the word "CROATOAN" carved on one of the buildings. The men assumed the settlers had moved to Croatan Island near Cape Hatteras. But sailing there, they found no trace of the colonists. Some historians think the settlers could not survive on their own and they moved in with some local Indians, the Lumbee Tribe. The members of the Lumbee Tribe today claim that is what happened.

What was the first permanent English Colony in North America and who was its leader?

The first English colony was most likely St. John's, Newfoundland (now in Canada), settled permanently since 1583. However, there are other communities on the island of Newfoundland (such as Harbour Grace) dating from 1583 as well, so the exact first colony is hard to pin-point and has been lost to history. Roanoke Island in what is now North Carolina was settled in 1587, but the colony failed and was "lost". Jamestown, VA was not settled until 1607.
