    <para>With land claimed in the New World, an expedition was mounted to establish a settlement.
      The first expedition failed. Led by Sir Richard Grenville in April 1585, it encompassed 600
      men of which 105 remained in the colony while Grenville returned to England for additional
      provisions. (<emphasis role="ital">See</emphasis>
      <xref linkend="mul83"/>.) However, when almost a year passed without Grenville’s return, the
      remainder of the expeditionary force took advantage of Sir Francis Drake’s arrival to seek

          returned for new settlers. However, it is unknown whether these men were present to greet
          the subsequent expedition.</para>
