Adventures of Sir Francis Drake Thus, on the precedent of early voyages by the Cabots, England claimed parts of North America as her own. These claims were reinforced some years later by the marauding adventures of Sir Francis Drake. In essence, Drake was a royally glorified pirate who made voyages to Guinea and the Gulf of Mexico to destroy Spanish ports and to plunder Spanish treasure ships in the West Indies. Since he was highly proficient at molesting and robbing the Spanish — and invariably returned to England with massive cargoes of Spanish treasure — Queen Elizabeth admired and rewarded him for his acumen.

From his voyages he brought back to Spain samples of exotic plants, birds of brilliant plumage and some gold. He also brought back a few native “Indians” — so-called because he believed he had discovered a new route to the East Indies. All of these things, Columbus believed, represented the treasures of the East. The first settlement of the Spanish in America was made in Panama by Alonzo de Ojeda in 1508. The island of Jamaica was colonized by the Spanish in 1509; Cuba, in 1511 and Puerto Rico, the Greater Antilles, Central America and Peru, shortly thereafter.

Between the years 1624 and 1664, this company prospered, sending Dutch settlers to the New World who energetically returned vast yields of furs, timber and other American products to the homeland. But during these forty years, England surveyed Dutch activities in America with acrimony — and frequently notified the Netherlands that the Dutch were illegally occupying her lands. She based her claim on the fact that her mariners, the Cabots, had sailed along the coast as early as 1497–98. ) As an outcome of this controversy, Charles II gave New Netherlands to his brother James, Duke of York and Albany, who, in 1664, sent four armed frigates, under the command of Colonel Richard Nicolls, to capture New Amsterdam.
