Excerpt from Colonial Chronology: A Chronology of the Principal Events; Connected With the English Colonies and India; From the Close of the Fifteenth Century to the Present Time; With Maps

The early years of James I. Are memorable for the formation of the London and Plymouth Companies, and for the colonization of North America under their auspices. The foundation of Jamestown in 1607 laid the corner-stone of the world-power now known as the United States of America. The choice by Champlain of the site of Quebec in the following year may fitly be styled the birth of the Dominion of Canada.
