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.

some people did not want to belong to the Church of England
Why did england want to begin a colony on north americas eastern shore
OK, either you want Massachusetts Bay or Virginia. Virginia was the first lasting colony founded in the New World with the settling of Jamestown in 1607.

James Oglethorpe created the Georgia colony to provide a home for convicts released from prison in England.
All countries want to be independent and make their own decisions. It's why the USA did not want to be a colony of England, and had a revolution (and a War of 1812) to sever ties with England. Countries want to be self-governing.
England did not want Spain to control all of North America`s.Too far to go to the western shore
The first English colony was Virginia and its Jamestown settlement. The people who settled there were ill-prepared and did not want to work, but instead searched for nonexistant gold. That caused a degree of famine which worsened when more settlers came over.
At the time of the Revolution the Mians were the most.
the english colonies wanted to expand in the direction of the dutch colny
Because I live in england and I am sexy
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.
