English & French Settlers


Jamestown was settled by British settlers in modern day Virginia on May 24, 1607.


The Pilgrims were from England and wanted to escape religious persecution from the Anglican church. They left England on a ship and landed in Plymouth Rock, North America.


The Puritans were English Protestants who disliked the influences of Catholicism. They decided to settle in Massachusetts Bay for religious freedom.
