The first American ever


WORLD'S FIRST AMERICAN
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first American?

As the British first colonized America our definition of the first American is the first person born to English parents in America.

Having said that Virginia Dare born August 18 1587 to Ananias Dare and Eleanor White on Roanoke Island, North Carolina meets the criteria as the first American.

Ananias Dare and Eleanor White were among 117 members to establish England's  second colony in America. Just 27 days after they arrived Virginia was born.

This colony was know as the 'lost colony'. In 1590 when John White, who originally brought the colonists, returned he could find no trace of the colonists. The only clues left were 'CRO' carved in one tree and 'CROATOAN' carved in another. The colonists were never heard from again.
