The Mayflower Leaves Port

1620 Sept 15th or maybe Sept 16th -- England: Mayflower departs from Plymouth with 102 pilgrims. Some say it was Sept 16th some say Sept 15th, anyway it was a group of johnny-come-lately who were sailing for Virginia and ended up in New England. Spain had already established towns in Florida by 1565 and New Mexico by 1598. England settled Virginia by 1607 and the Dutch were in New york state by 1614.
