There can be two answers to this question. The classical answer is Jamestown, as being the first successful colony established by the British, the other being the colony established in Roanoke (spelling?).

They didn't invade Virginia. It was a British colony.
New York was first colonized by the Dutch, who named it New Amsterdam, based on the European city named Amsterdam. Later, the British invaded the colony, and the Dutch, not wanting to fight another battle with the British, surrendered New Amsterdam. The Dutch exited the colony, and the British occupied it. They named their new acquired colony New York based on the Duke of York.
