The colonists went to Roanoke by boat with 117 people on April 26 of 1587. They started from Portsmouth, England to the new world. They had a main goal to establish a new colony by the bay in Chesapeake.
From the resource wikipida life was very free feeling. Even though john White was a strict leader. People were also always doing work and heloing.
One scenario I strongly agree with is that they left to corotoan island because they wrote it on a tree and john white told them to write there destination on a tree if they go. I also agree with A hurricane because everything was gone and I think they would leave something behind. I could also agree with the native amaericans taking over or killing them because bones were found.
