The New England Colonies
By Evan Thigpen
Plymouth Rock, now known as Massachuetts, was the settlement of the Pilgrams in 1620. The Pilgrams were a group of people who would voyage to other places for religious reasons. The religoin of these Pilgrams were of a Puritan belief. Massachuetts did not have a cash crop but they did have a big and special source of income which was ship building.
New Hampshire was founded in 1623 and was the second New England colony founded. This particular colony was a corporate colony when it was first founded but it was later revoked and turned into a royal colony. Mixed farming was what supported the economy for this colony. New Hampshire was also of Puritan beleif.
