When Captain Newport returned to Virginia with the first supply in early 1608, he also bore new and different instructions from the Virginia Company in England. The company's governing council was not pleased with the accomplishments of the colonists, especially that no gold, trade, or staple product had yet been found to produce profits for the company's stockholders. The First Supply carried a new crop of colonists with specialized skills that the Company hoped would stabilize the colony and yield a profitable industry in the new land of Virginia. Here is the list of those settlers:
