John Cabot who sailed for England claimed North America in 1497. Giovanni da Verrazzano claimed the land in 1534 for France. Some Spanish missionaries settled in Virginia in 1570 but were killed by Native Americans. The English sent a colony to Roanoake Island in 1584. At the time the land was considered Virginia but is now part of North Carolina. However all the colonists disappeared. James' Fort or Jamestown was established in 1607. It was the first permanent settlement by Europeans.
