    Jamestown, founded in 1607, was the first successful permanent English settlement in what would become the United States. It was located on Jamestown Island, in Virginia, about 30 miles (47 kilometers) up the James River from the Atlantic coast

    The location could be easily defended from attack by sea (Spanish). The water along the shore was deep enough for ships to dock. & They believed they had a good supply of fresh water.
