The New England colony consisted of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Economically they relied on fishing, farming, home manufacturers, and sea trade. The New Englanders seemed to live longer than the British because of their well diet. They also were very strong into their faith and looked down upon people who are not. They also quickly established a type of government.
The middle colonies consisted of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. England later took control over New York and New Jersey making them royal province. Economically they depended on fur trade with the Native Americans and grain productions. Then along came Quakers seeking religious freedom and went to a new colony.
