Best Answer

The first ones wanted gold, but they were too far north. The only major gold deposits east of the Mississippi were in Dalonegah County, Georgia, & they weren't discovered until 1825. Other than that, they wanted land they could farm without having to split the profit with the nobleman whose land they plowed.

If you are asking about Jamestown the men who came were there to look for gold for investors and not begin a colony. It wasn't until 1620 that Plymouth colony was established and it was a colony that was to establish a way of living for families.
