John Winthrop is known for founding and leading of the Massachusetts Bay colony in new England. Before going abroad to the “new world”, “John Winthrop had practiced law in and nearby areas around London prior to his affiliation with the trading organization called the Massachusetts Bay Company. ”He struggled with the decision to abandon his home. Winthrop was very aware of the hardships that had claimed the lives of half the pilgrims 10 years earlier, who had settled in Plymouth. As a strict Puritan in the first governor of Massachusetts Bay colony, John Winthrop believed that they could establish a pure church in new England for the Puritans.
In the south, most citizens lived on farms scattered on the plains, and small farmers in the backcountry. Since the south got most of its economic wealth from agriculture, towns and industries gradually developed. Wealthy planters were the upper class and head of the south since not many people in the south had much of an education. There were very few schools and churches since neither education nor religion were organized. The north was very different from the south.
Books in the Old English era were accomplished by turning animal skin into parchment paper. To do this process was very time consuming and skill required, so naturally when the books were finally written or hand-copied, the books became an expensive luxury rather than a commodity of knowledge for all. In the Middle English era books were accomplished by taking old linen rags after the plague and turning them into paper. This process was a little cheaper than animal skin, so a more range of civilians were acquiring books, but still only those who had enough money to spend on such things. Since only the nobles were taught any reading in the Middle English era, as it was in the Old English era, it was mostly nobles purchasing and viewing.
New England did not "have all of it 's investments tied up on one place" very like the Chesapeake. The economy depended on angling, shipbuilding, and cultivating. The cultivating in New England was done on a substantially littler scale, notwithstanding. Since the religion (and society) was so family-situated, ranches were generally sufficiently substantial to nourish one 's family, with a little overflow. It was no where close to the span of the huge estates in the Chesapeake.
1.) Paleo Indians The Paleo-Indians were groups of people that traveled to America from Northeastern Asia around 13,000 B.C.E. They traveled in bands (containing fifteen to fifty people) where women cared for the children and prepared the food that the men hunted. At Monte Verde, Chile, the Paleo-Indians had a wide variety of plants and animals to choose from; however, they had a greater interest in large mammals such as: mammoths, caribou, and bison. Upon encountering other groups, the Paleo-Indians shared ideas and traded goods.
Since the goods bought were grown in our local farms, it contributes to the country’s economy. Also, the shipping fee would be cheaper and the distance travelled would be shorter which means less pollution from deliveries. Along with having our food grown in our country, most meals were also cooked at home. This habit is better for our health as fast food is negative for
The merchants, traders and warriors relied on the farmers for the produce and food to survive on the open seas. “A Viking farmstead raised crops of oats, barley, rye and cabbage to supplement the haul from the sea, and it raised flocks of geese and herds of cattle, goats, sheep and pigs to provide both food and raw materials” (Wernick 21). These goods would provide the merchants, traders and warriors with food, tools and clothing. The Vikings also had a rather sophisticated legal system for such a barbaric land in the 8th
There was a lack of food due to the fact that there was very few starchy crops and when they died there was no food supply. This caused starvation not only among the farmers themselves but, among their families and the community. The Neolithic revolution was not all bad though. It had many positive side effects such as civilization, stability among communities and population. Since people weren't starving when the crops and animals were domesticated this caused population to grow and eventually start a stable civilization due to a food surplus.
“Each region had a unique economy based on its geographical location and its founding ideology, and each region’s society developed in response to those two factors” (Schultz, 61). New England, which now consisted of Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, developed into an area of many small to moderately sized towns. They cultivated a few different types of crops including grains, cereals and fruits. In addition to their farming they raised livestock, fished and gathered lumber. They began a shipbuilding industry in response to their massive lumber supply.
There was lack of cultural and literary abilities, especially in Western Europe. Migration to England increased during the Early Middle Ages. The Europeans came in large groups to England. There were agricultural labourers such as skilled cloth weavers, and merchants involved in international trade. “They were seen as abusing their special privileges and enjoying unfair economic advantages over their English-born neighbours and co-workers.”
The physical geography of the New England, Middle, and South regions are extremely different. The New England region is difficult to farm on because you have to break up rocks to farm on the thin soil. Breaking up the rocks required challenging work and they also had harsh winters. As a result of this, the New England people began fishing on their rich grounds and entered the lumber industry because of their thick forests. The Middle Colonies has amazing soil for growing wheat, which is what they received most of their income from.
Farming was a good source of money because the fertile soil made it easy to grow crops like grain, trees, and potatoes. New York and Philadelphia were the Middle Colonies biggest cities. This was because
Separatist- more commonly called Pilgrims came from England on the Mayflower in 1620 to escape religious persecution starting their settlement in Holland and then moving on to America. They were the origin of America, a small group of English families seeking the dream of freedom and prosperity. When they arrived here they founded the Plymouth colony which is now Massachusetts.
Economy and social division played a huge role in what the Salem Witch Trials turned to be. Many historians theorize that the real reason behind the trials was due to the different opinions between the townsmen, who were considered to be rich, and the farmers, who had to rely on the more powerful people of Salem. During these times Salem was divided into two very different parts: Salem Town and Salem Village or Salem Farms. Both were located in what is considered “Salem, Massachusetts” but were highly divided due to the different economy, class, and characters. The residents in Salem Town were considered the prosperous and the land was fertile.
After that he joined the Massachusetts Bay Company that were planning to put a colony in New England. He pledged to sell his English estate to pay for his family to go to Massachusetts if needed. Eventually He and his family sailed west to Massachusetts on the Arabella in 1630, where there he was elected governor. John Winthrop died on April 5th, 1649 at the age of 61 in Boston
