    The desire for the products of far away places.
    For example:
    Spices from the East Indies
    Gold from Central and South America
    Fur and tobacco and fish from North America
    Slaves from much of Africa
    Space to settle away from crowded or unfriendly home nations (Pilgrims, Huguenots, Puritans, Quakers etc)
    Desire to spread thir particular religion
    I am sure you can find more in your text.
