In a well known story, Sir Walter Ralegh’s attempt to settle Virginia in 1587 became The Lost Colony, when 117 men, women and children simply disappeared. Significant evidence suggests that they intentionally relocated inland, continuing the alliance they had formed with the Croatan tribe, and that Ralegh, at least, kept in touch with them.
