Santa Fe/Quebec/Jamestown: All of these (Santa Fe, Quebec Roanoke, and Jamestown) settlements were colonized in the year of 1607.
Jamestown was founded by the British, and more specifically: Christopher Newport, in the Chesapeake Bay, and also the heart of the Powhatan Confederacy, in modern day Virginia. The colony was characterized by distinct defensive fortifications (walls, barricades, parapets, etc), unique swampy terrain, and a natural harbor for trade. One might assume that the Jamestown colony was successful initially; however, one would be incorrect. The colony of Jamestown, initially, was plagued by disease, inefficiency, and hostilities with the natives; these all lead to insanely high death rates for the formative years. Although, with the resupplying of stock [humans] to Jamestown, the leadership of Rolfe, and Smith; Jamestown began to make a return on investment by supplying tobacco to England and quickly expanded to increase tobacco production.
Santa Fe is a settlement of Spanish origins, it was established at the foot of the Sangre de Christo Mountains in 1607 on the remains of old Pueblo ruins and originally named La Villa del la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asís, the Royal Town of the Holy Faith of Saint Francis of Assisi. This colony during its formative years, fared much better than that of Jamestown and experienced natural increase [of population], yield of goods for exportation, and later would become a vital city for the Spanish Empire.
Quebec was founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain and Sieur de Mons sponsored by Henry IV. It became the second permanent French settlement in the colony of Canada. Champlain quickly allied himself with the Algonquin and Montagnais natives, who were at war with the Iroquois. Champlain sealed the alliance between the French and the Algonquin, and Montagnais people by killing two Iroquois Chiefs near lake Champlain. This alliance helped Quebec prosper and flourish into a prominent trading port in North America that fared much better than both Jamestown and Santa Fe.
