empire in North America?

As we know, it was James the First, who was a Lowlander, who set out the first conquest of North America (England went to North America, however it was mostly a small colony; and culturally English Virginia was a like lot Canada today; thus contrasting it from the Virginia that was under Scotland, contributing to modern American culture). Why though? Was it jealousy of Spain and Holland's success as powers? James was the same king who tried to steal the English crown, thus harming innocent southerners (England) in his attempt to conquer England.

Jamestown was named for James VI (of Scotland) who was also later James I (of England), this was implemented while James was King of England. So it was England who was expanding into America, not Scotland.
