Puritan emigration to New England came to a near-halt between 1649 and 1660, the years during which Oliver Cromwell ruled as Lord Protector of England.

  • During the Interregnum (literally “between kings”), Puritans had little motive to move to the New World.

For slightly over a decade, Cromwell ruled England as a republic, complete with a constitution.
  • Everything the Puritans wanted – freedom to practice their religion, as well as representation in the government – was available to them in England

The death of Cromwell (1658) robbed the Puritans of their most respected leader.
  • In 1660, the Stuarts were restored to the throne.
  • With the restoration of the Stuarts, many English Puritans again emigrated to the New World.
  • Not coincidentally, these emigrants brought with them the republican ideals of the revolution

After the English Civil War, the reign of Charles II was called the Restoration because it restored the English monarchy.
  • Charles repaid political favors by establishing proprietary colonies, or colonies owned by one person, who usually received the land as a gift from the king
maryland was granted to cecil calvert aka lord baltimore 2 nd
Maryland was granted to Cecil Calvert (aka Lord Baltimore 2nd).
  • Calvert declared Maryland a haven of religious tolerance for all Christians, and it became the first major Catholic enclave in the New World

  • As a reward for helping him gain the throne, Charles II granted a huge tract of land between VA and Spanish Florida to 8 nobles in 1663
settling south carolina
Settling South Carolina
  • Charles town was formed in 1670
  • Settled by the descendants of Englishmen who had colonized Barbados.
  • Barbado’s primary export was sugar, and its plantations were worked by slaves.
  • Initially, the economy was based on trading furs and providing food for the West Indies
  • By the middle of the 18th century, large rice-growing plantations worked by African slaves created an economy and culture that resembled the West Indies
slide17

Although Carolina was geographically closer to the Chesapeake colonies, it was culturally closer to the West Indies in the seventeenth century since its early settlers—both blacks and whites—came from Barbados.

Democratic North Carolina
  • Settled by Virginians and developed into a Virginia-like colony
  • Farmers from VA and New England established small, self-sufficient tobacco farms
  • Region had few good harbors and poor transportation so there were fewer large plantations and less reliance on slavery
  • By the 18th century, the colony earned a reputation for democratic views and autonomy from British control
