Raleigh (North Carolina, United States) (search for this): entry harriott-thomas
Harriott, Thomas 1560-1621 Astronomer, historian, and friend of Sir Walter Raleigh; born in Oxford, England, in 1560. In 1585 he accompanied Raleigh's expedition to Virginia, under Grenville, as historian, and most of the knowledge of that expedition is derived from Harriott's account. He was left there by Grenville, and remained a year, making observations; and from the pencil of With, an artist, he obtained many useful drawings. Harriott labored hard to restrain the cupidity of his companions, who were more intent upon finding gold than tilling the soil. While Governor Lane declared that Virginia had the goodliest soil under the cope of heaven, and if Virginia had but horses and kine, and were inhabited by English, no realm in Christendom were comparable to it, he utterly neglected the great opportunity.
