Early life[ edit ] John White's exact date of birth is unknown but it seems likely he was born some time between and White is known to have attended church in the parish of St. Martin Ludgate in London. These works are significant as they are the most informative illustrations of a Native American society of the Eastern seaboardand predate the first body of "discovery voyage art" created in the late 18th century by the artists who sailed with Captain James Cook.
They represent the sole-surviving visual record of the native inhabitants of America encountered by England's first settlers. They were guided by the Portuguese navigator Simon Fernandezthe same pilot who had led the expedition and who was given by his fellow sailors the unhappy nickname of "the swine.
But, upon reaching Roanoke in late July,  and allowing the colonists to disembark, Fernandez refused to let White's men re-board ship.
According to White's journal, Fernandez's deputy "called to the sailors in the pinessecharging them not to bring any of the planters [settlers] back againe, but leave them on the island.
White quickly made contact with friendly natives led by Chief Manteowho explained to him that the lost fifteen had been killed by hostile SecotanAquascogocand Dasamongueponke warriors,  choosing a time and place of attack "of great advantage to the savages. White and his soldiers entered the Dasamongueponke village in the morning "so early that it was yet dark,"  but mistakenly attacked a group of hitherto friendly Indians, killing one and wounding many.
The anchor of the flyboat on which White was quartered could not be raised, and many crew members were severely injured during the attempt. Just two weeks previously Queen Elizabeth I had issued a general "stay of shipping," preventing any ships from leaving English shores.
Unluckily for White, they were barely suited for the Atlantic crossing and the governor endured further bad luck as the ships were intercepted by French pirateswho "playd extreemely upon us with their shot," hitting White to his great embarrassment "in the side of the buttoke.

Roanoke Island was not the original planned location for the colony and the idea of moving elsewhere had been discussed. Before the Governor's departure, he and the colonists had agreed that a message would be carved into a tree if they had moved and would include an image of a Maltese Cross if the decision was made by force.
However, local Indians had evidently looted the hiding place, and White found "about the place many of my things spoyled and broken, and my books torne from the covers, the frames of some of my pictures and mappes rotten and spoyled with rayne, and my armour almost eaten through with rust.
The ship's captain had already lost three anchors and could not afford the loss of another. The loss of the colony was a personal tragedy for White, from which he never fully recovered. He would never return to the New World, and in a letter to Richard Hakluyt he wrote that he must hand over the fate of the colonists and his family "to the merciful help of the Almighty, whom I most humbly beseech to helpe and comfort them.
He appears to have been in Ireland living on the estates of Sir Walter Raleigh, making maps of land for Raleigh's tenants, and reflecting upon the "evils and unfortunate events" which had ruined his hopes in the New World, though never giving up hope that his daughter and granddaughter were still alive.
