He built two forts at the mouth of the James River, which he named Henry and Charles, in honor of the King's sons. In 1611 he sailed for the West Indies, but was driven back by a storm and landed at the mouth of the Delaware River, whence he sailed for England. In 1618 he embarked for Virginia and died on the voyage.
