How the colonies were founded and some other stuff
Run originally by John Smith, not a very nice place to live (starving time) and was pretty much a failure, until...
New bodies and supplies, along with a new governor (who was harsher and more organised). Arrives with sucessor Thomas Dale (who hands out land)
Incentivise actually working, rather than doing the bare minimum
Is this like a real government, for real?
Kills many and convinces the Virginia Co. to give up
As a result of the aforementioned problems. The king takes Jamestown over and declares it a royal colony
Suppressed by Berkeley, got him popularity
Boring, rocky and barren. Not many people, only religious nuts no-one likes goes there
John Smith and other Seperatists got permission (controversial) from the King to do their thing in America so ended up in Plymouth. Very English and loyal to the King
Thomas Hooker did so, another religious thing
Roger Williams is the most extremely liberal of the group, even allows Jews
Granted by the throne and run privately. Therefore more interference and more regulation than commercial but less than religious.
To Cecilius Calvert, a Catholic aristocrat
Friendly, laid-back Indians
Proddy vs Papists
More laid back and international than other colonies
William Penn named it for his father. Actually kinda a religious colony too (Quakers). Very international, especially German.
