The British colonizing America started in Jamestown, Virginia in 1607 (17th century) , and it reached its climax when colonies had been set up all throughout the Americas. There were three types of colonies in America during the British empire, they were, royal colonies, charter colonies, and proprietary colonies. Most of British settlement happened in the 17th century, but after 1700, most people that came to the colonized America arrived indentured servants. From the time between the later 1600's and the American Revolution, the British shipped about 50,000 people to the American colonies, (the first of these people even arrived before the Mayflower.)
