John White's map, elegantly designed and superbly engraved, revolutionized geographic knowledge of the region. Although White left the Chesapeake poorly explored, much of his coastal data became the principal source for subsequent mappings for many years. John White was governor of the ill-fated Roanoke colony in North Carolina that was the first English attempt to settle North America.
The earliest collectible map of Virginia and North Carolina and also the earliest to show and name the Chesapeake Bay.
Its numerous pictorial elements include English ships outside the Outer Banks and at the entrance of Chesapeake Bay, Indian canoes around the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds, Indian figures, the royal arms of England, etc. With the motto of the British Order of the Garter ("Honi soit qui mal y pense").
Quinn describes the map as the most careful detailed piece of cartography for any part of North America to be made in the sixteenth century.
De Bry's Virginia come in three variations. This state (2) shows the town of Ehesepioc the first letter of the village name superimposed with a C and remnant of the E still remains.

John White accompanied Sir Walter Raleigh on his 1585 expedition into Virginia and modern-day North Carolina. He assisted in selecting the location of the Roanoke Colony, later served as governor, and found the colony deserted in 1590 upon returning from England. He was the grandfather of Virginia Dare, the first child born to English colonists in America.
