Social and Economic change motivated many English to move to North America. A stimulus for this was the introduction of American crops. This caused the population to double. Since there were much more people who needed food, clothing and other goods ,this forced people to look other alternatives for earning a living to provide for themselves. The alternative for some of them was coming to America. English officials also thought to move the surplus of the population in England to the established colonies in America. This marks the period of when the English started coming to America.
