Which Colony should you move to?
By: Kayla German
The land in the area had rich and rocky soil, and the climate was somewhat mild. In the winter it was pretty cold, but just like every other place, winter gets kind of cold, and in the summer, it was pretty warm on occasion. Since the land had rich and rocky soil, it made farming excellent and better for their crops. They were able to use their forests to provide things for themselves. They used forests to make wooden furniture, and they used the Atlantic Ocean, for fishing and whaling, for food.
In 1643, the swedes built Fort Elfsborg which is near Dutch Fort. Then in 1655, the dutch leader Peter Stuyvesant marched to the Swedish fort and demand their surrender. Then without a fight they surrendered without a fight. In 1644, English ships and soldiers, commanded by James, the brother of the king of England captured the Netherlands. The Netherlands that they had captured is now today called New Jersey. James gave the land to 2 of his good friends Sir George Carteret and Lord John Berkeley. They then renamed the area New Jersey because Carteret was from the British Isle of Jersey. They had charged rent for living on their land, and were very poor leaders. Then again in 1674, Lord Berkeley sold his land to Quakers, who then called the area West Jersey and in 1702, East and West Jersey joined together again, and then became a royal colony ruled by the king of England, and called it New Jersey. New jersey has so many great qualities, why would you want to live anywhere else? New Jersey is so amazing, so you better stay away from New Hampshire!
The New England colonies are the coldest colonies of all 3 regions. Their geography consists of low coast’s, hills, mountains, and plateaus. Their climate, is pretty mild, having very short summers, which in return then leads to cold and bitter weather for a really long time.
This is exactly the reason to defiantly not move to New Hampshire, because if there are harsh cold winters, do you really just want to be trapped inside all day, if not most days?
Yes, there are short summers, but that only lasts for a very little bit, then there are cold winters. That would not be the right place to move to at all. Instead in New Jersey, they even it all out, and their summer, and winter's are not bad at all, especially compared to New Hampshire!
There was absolutely no religious freedom, none at all. There was also no freedom in areas owned by the Puritans, they did not tolerate any other religion, besides their own. Puritans are pretty much just a big group of English Protestants.
Absolutely, whatever you do, do not move to New Hampshire because, their religious freedom is slim to none at all unless you are of the religion of Puritans. There is really no freedom at all there, so instead you should stay in New Jersey where there is religious freedom, but still respects what you choose to believe in.
In 1622 King James gave the land that he had owned to John Mason and Sir Ferdinand Gorges. Then in 1623, David Thomson, and his 20 English settlers had built pannaway plantation, which was the first European Settlement in New Hampshire.
New York is not the place to live, because do you want to live in a place that has really hot summers, that seem like they last forever? Or bitterly cold winters that seem like they last forever? NO move to New Jersey where it is not like that.
The people there don’t necessarily have a specific religion, therefore there is religious freedom for Quakers, Catholics, Lutherans, Jews and Others. So it is pretty much all free, to be or go to what ever you want for religion. Also in 1778, on July 26, the colony had become a state in the U.S.
Don’t move to New York, because if they are not focused on a religion, and they do pretty much whatever religion, that would not be a place that I would like to go to at all! Instead I think that you should go to New Jersey and join into your religion there, they are more focused and there to do what’s right for you.
