Live Cam Manteo, Queen Elizabeth Ave, NC USA
Live Cam Manteo is a town in Dare County, North Carolina, United States, located on Roanoke Island. The population was 1,434 at the 2010 census.It is the county seat of Dare County.
The town is named for an American Indian named Manteo, who was of the Croatans tribe of American Indians. Manteo had been “civilized” by the English during a trip to London in 1584 where he and another Indian, Wanchese, learned to become the liaisons between the Roanoke Colony settlers and the Indians, and had favorable interaction with British colonist John White. In fact, Manteo was christened and given the name Lord of Roanoke, making him the first American Indian to receive a title of nobility. Eventually, John White’s daughter Eleanor married Ananias Dare, and they had the first American-born English child, Virginia Dare. In 1587, Manteo was friendly to White when he returned to find what the final stage of the Roanoke Colony became. When the colonists disappeared after supplies from England were delayed for three years, the ongoing mystery of “The Lost Colony” began.
