Puritan Intolerance

Puritan emigration

  • Between 1649-1660, Puritans to New England slowed to a halt

  • Oliver Cromwell ruled England as a republic

  • Had a Constitution

  • Died in 1658

  • By 1660, the Stuarts restored the throne

  • Interregnum: between kings: Puritans had prosperity in England, even if it was brief…

  • Stuarts took over, Puritans began emigrating again

Puritan Emigration

A summary of new england and chesapeake

  • Very different lives

  • Entire families emigrated to New England

  • Single males to Virginia

  • Climate was more suitable in N.E. and people lived longer

  • Stronger sense of community in N.E.

  • Towns were closer in N.E.

  • Both groups were religious, but who was by far the most religious of the two??????

A summary of New England and Chesapeake

Part ii other early colonies thanks to king charles ii

Part II: Other Early Colonies: Thanks to King Charles II!

A summary of many of the early colonies and how they got started

Ma and pequot war

  • Massachusetts settlers began to look for new places to live

  • CT valley was a good place

  • Lots of access to the sea for trade

  • Area was inhabited by Pequots, who attacked a settlement in Wakefield and killed nine colonists

  • MA Bay members burned the main Pequot village, killing 400, including men, women, and children

MA and Pequot War

Connecticut and maryland

  • Proprietorship (owned by one person)

  • CT was one example (John Winthrop I believe…)

  • MD was another; granted to Calvert (Lord Baltimore)

  • Calvert declared MD a haven for Catholics, but also for all Christians to have religious tolerance

Connecticut and Maryland

New york

  • A royal gift to James, the king’s brother

  • Much of the area was New Netherland, a Dutch settlement

  • Dutch didn’t think much of area other than a trading post

  • After English invaded, Dutch allowed to stay, and made up a lot of NY population for years

New York

New jersey

  • King gave New Jersey to a couple of friends (political allies)

  • The friends then turned around and gave it back to the crown, and it became a royal colony again!

  • It was not a profitable colony

  • No major cities developed there at that time

New Jersey


  • King Charles II gave PA to William Penn, a close friend

  • Charles felt that Quakers were “dangerous radicals”, as did many at this time

  • But he and Penn were friends, and with his desire to get the Quakers as far away from England as possible, he gave them PA

  • Penn established liberal policies toward religious freedom and civil liberties in PA

  • PA became one of the fastest growing colonies


North carolina

North Carolina

South carolina

  • The other half of the split

  • Settled by descendants of Englishmen who had colonized Barbados

  • Settlers from Barbados were the first Englishmen in the New World who had seen widespread slavery at work

  • This was really what marked the beginning of the slave era in the colonies

South Carolina
