Jamestown First successful English settlement in America. It was established in 1607 on the James River, Virginia. On the verge of collapse from disease and starvation, it was saved by the leadership of Captain John Smith (1608), and the timely arrival of new supplies and colonists (1610). From 1614 tobacco planting assured the colony's survival.
