Pilgrims is a name commonly applied to early settlers of the Plymouth Colony in present-day Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States, with the men commonly called Pilgrim Fathers.
The Puritans were a group of English Reformed Protestants in the 16th and 17th centuries who sought to purify the Church of England from all Roman Catholic practices, maintaining that the Church of England was only partially reformed.

Jamestown & Plymouth
Plymouth- Was an English colonial venture in North America from 1620 to 1691. The first settlement of the Plymouth Colony was at New Plymouth, a location previously surveyed and named by Captain John Smith. The settlement, which served as the capital of the colony, is today the modern town of Plymouth, Massachusetts.
G-d:Many of the early European explorers came to North America as missionaries, to convert the indigenous population. Also, once the situation in Europe began to change, many of the sects that were not welcome in Europe moved the North America to escape persecution.
Glory:Tied in with gold in many ways, this was both personal glory and glory for ones own country. There was a lot of prestige associated with founding a new settlement or discovering a new natural resource and so many of the explorers sought to 'out-glory' one another and become the most well-known.
