Roanoke colony



Third expedition

Expedition consisting of 150 settlers arrived to Roanoke colony on 22 July 1587 on their way to start a new settlement in Chesapeake Bay. All that they have found was a skeleton that could have been remains of one of the British from garrison, but there was no sign of any other people left by Granville year before.

They approached the local tribes, but they were uncooperative and soon the conflicts began again. The decision was made to send small group to England for help and leave 115 colonists on Roanoke Island to keep up the colony. The next expedition was expected soon, but due to ongoing war with Spain it was delayed for almost 3 years.
