1. The English colonies are separated into three groups known as the South, Middle, and New England regions. Some of the colonies share similar characteristics, while others have significant differences.
Virginia was the first colony founded in 1607 by John smith and other colonist. The colony was named after Queen Elizabeth â€œthe Virgin Queenâ€. Virginia faced many struggles due to health concern, battles with natives, and shortage of food. In order to survive iron, planting tobacco, sowing corn became a source of income.
Maryland was created in 1634 and named by in honor of Henrietta Maria. This colony also worked in the tobacco fields to gain profits. Maryland is also known for adopting slavery which lawfully classified Africans as property and not people.
The Carolinas (North and South Carolina) was founded by Virginia Colonists known as the Lord of Proprietors. Both are identified as restoration colonies. The northern part of the Carolina immigrants converted sap from pine trees to turpentine that was utilized to protect ships. Slavery was dominant with blacks in the Southern part of the Carolinas.
Georgia established in 1732 by a member of Parliament, James Oglethorpe. The Parliament sponsored hundreds of settlers which named Georgia the only government supported colonial project. In Georgia large quantities of rice was gathered by slaves.
New York and New Jersey were also restoration colonies added by Charles II. New York encompassed a variety of different people and religions including French Protestants and Jews. In addition, slave conflict was very high in New York.
Pennsylvania was invested in 1681 by William Penn as compensation to settle a land debt with Charles II. It is also a restoration colony that became the focus of British America. Quakers congregated to Pennsylvania to present their religious beliefs without conflict.
Delaware was named after the Delaware River. Accepted the Quakers religious Christian society. Participated in fur trading.
Massachusetts was governed by John Winthrop allowed settlers to honor their own religion without harassment. This colony was first known as an English colony until the war against Great Britain.
Rhode Island was originated in the 1630 by Roger Williams who deported from the Massachusetts colony because of religious acceptance for nonbelievers was not supported. This colony refused to allow religious diversity.
Connecticut was New Hampshire colonies were founded by Puritans who did not support other religions.
If I was a colonist the middle region would be more appealing because of the valuable natural resources for food and the versatile religious independence.
2. Good morning everyone.
This subject about the English colonies is very interesting to me
The English were Largely non-Catholics. Although some tolerance was practiced in most colonies, the Puritans in Massachusetts established an autocratic and restrictive religious leadership. Pennsylvania mandated complete tolerance.
South Region – VA, Colony full of people searching for gold, John Smith (A leader of Englandâ€™s first settlement called Jamestown) instituted a policy â€œNo work, no foodâ€,
Farming tobacco, the economic success came, which caused problems with the Nativeâ€™s that lived there.
The Governor of VA refused to help the frontier colonists, due to make lost of money off the fur trade with the natives.
Catholicism was not popular during this time in England, Anglican was the major religion. Lord Baltimore of Maryland established a colony to provide religious freedom for catholics.
NC and SC in 1729 became separate colonies.
Middle – New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey , New York, was named after the Duke of York , The English granted large estates to a few favored families. Admiral William Penn (PA named after him, Charles II owed the Penn family a large debt) helped take Jamaica from the Spanish in 1655.
New England – Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire Massachusetts, pilgrims came to the New World, they wanted to flee religious persecution, they came from the ship called the mayflower, the natives taught them how to use the resources of the land. The were separatists from the Anglican church. Had a lower social status
The puritans wanted to create a pure form of the Anglican church, had a higher social status.
If I were a colonist, I would have to say the colony that seems most interesting to me would be Pennsylvania, they seemed like they had more religious freedom, I think that’s the reason the Quakers moved there.
