Why have I never heard of the Sagadahoc Colony?

Eastern New England 1730

You always hear about Jamestown in Virginia. But until reading a very thin kids’ book last week, I’d never heard of Sagadahoc. It was a similar colony to the north, in Maine. Both were settled in 1607. Why do we never hear about it in school? I have since learned that it’s also known as the Popham Colony.
