Discovered (officially) by Sebastian Cabot, in 1497, for Henry VII., fleets for fishing purposes soon frequented its shores. In 1583, Sir Humfrey Gilbert, by patent from Queen Elizabeth, formally annexed it to the British crown, and left a few settlers. Chiefly through Captain Whitbourne's efforts, it was permanently colonized under James I., the "province" being named Avalon, whilst the principal "adventurers" included the Rt. Hon. Henry Gary, Viscount of Falkland, who had received a grant of an extensive "coast circuit" there, and who sent some settlers from Ireland under Sir Francis Tannll, in 1623, Sir John Calvert, His Majesty's Chief Secretary, "The Wor. John Slany, of London, marchant, some Wor. Citizens of Bristoll, the Wor. William Vaughan, of Taracod, in the county of Carmarthen, Doctor of the Civil Law," and some others. The colony prospered, but Charles the First, influenced by his queen, permitted the French to fish there on payment of tribute.
