Both the Chesapeake colonies and the New England colonies were vital to Britain’s atlantic trade. They both had large populations and booming economies. However, they both eventually established their own cultures that were different from each other. The colonies’ differing beliefs, environments, and labor lead to the contrasting cultures.

Though they came from the same origin, the New England and Chesapeake Regions both separated, and with different goals for each colony. By the 1700s the Chesapeake and New England regions were distinctively different even though both were made from English colonies based on, the people whom settled the land, the governing goals and the religions brought to the new land. After arriving in the New World, the New England and Chesapeake Colonies began to thrive, but from ideas that came from very different people.

During the 16th and 17th century, England began trying to colonize the New World. England sent out many colonists in an attempt to make more money and gain more land in the Americas. These colonies were separated into different sections: Plymouth Bay, and the Southern Colonies. Although each of these colonies were English colonies, they all developed differently. The southern colonies were split into two groups - Upper South (Chesapeake Bay) and the Lower South (The Carolinas).
The New England and Chesapeake colonies were established during the early 1700s. Despite the population originating from England, the regions had distinct societies. This was due to the fact that many settlers voyaged to the New World in search of riches, to seek new lives, or for religious freedom.

Before the changed the colonies were technically the same, maybe not in religion, nor beliefs. But they all traded with their respected country of origin England. As seen in Doc 9, when they reached the new world they the colonist came from the exact same background.
Britain and its colonies During this time in history more and more settlements will be popping up in the newly discovered America. In particular, England. England sent out numerous amounts of people to two main regions on the east coast of America. The two regions were identified as Chesapeake and New England colonies.
