New England and the Chesapeake Bay were two of the 13 colonies and were settled by the same type of people. However, even though they had the same group of people colonizing them both, the outcomes of the two colonies were vastly different. This happened due to the different types of people colonizing the regions, different expectations of what would happen or be there, and how they set up their plantations.
Although New England and the Chesapeake region were both settled largely by people of English origin, by 1700 the regions had evolved into two distinct societies. There were many reasons in the development of these colonies that cause the differences.
First and foremost, New England had a varied structure of labor workers than that of the Chesapeake colonists. New Englanders had a steady supply of whole families being transported looking for freedom and land while the Chesapeake system of labor included a powerful man controlling indentured servants as labor. “New England farmers had to rely on their own families for the labor to build their especially demanding farms...In the richer Chesapeake, where an
The “New World” attracted settlers and explorers from across the world. Throughout the age of exploration, mass amounts of people explored America, while some nations developed posts or trading ports in North America. The concept of moving to a new, uncharted area attracted many Europeans, who experienced religious persecution and/or desired a fresh start to life. The newly arrived settlers formed colonies, and settlements, whose creation shaped the future of the nation. By the 1700’s the New England and Chesapeake regions evolved into distinct societies through their colonist’s reasons for settlement, population, socio-economic developments, because of the religious, and cultural contrasts
Although New England and the Chesapeake region were both settled by people of English origin, by 1700 the regions have evolved into two new distinct societies. Why did this difference in development occur?
New England and Virginia were both settled by people of English decent. Both areas were settled at around the same period of time. However, the two developed into very different societies. The main explanation for this is the bases upon which each area was founded.
During the times of colonial migration, most who settled in the American colonies were English. Many immigrants came for the desire of a new beginning, an escape from conflicts of religion and politics, and/or new economic opportunities. Despite the similarity of descending from England, many people had different philosophies as to how they wanted to live in the New World. The different ideologies between settlers resulted in a huge divide between the regions of Chesapeake Bay and New England with distinctly different societies by 1700, formed due to religious, geographic, and economic differences.
Historically speaking, homosapians have inhabited the North America for millions of years as they came over on Pangaea's land bridges. However, it wasn't until Columbus’s “discovery” of the Americas that the population of North America began to stabilize and grow to form the two distinct regions. These two distinct regions eventually became known as the New England colonies and the Chesapeake Bay colonies. Some of the differences between the two regions included motivation of colonists, immigration patterns, and settlement patterns.
By the 1700’s, The northern and souther colonies had evolved into two distinct societies. This is so because the northern and southern colonies had different environments and also different reasons of settlement. The North was established for mainly religious freedom, while on the other hand, the south had been established for economic freedom. The climate also affected the different turnout of the north and the south. The north was much colder and so their soil was not beneficial for farming, so the people of the north found other jobs, while on the other side, the south had rich soil and the colonists there used that idea to set up huge plantations and farms.
From England, around 16th century, many groups came to the eastern coast of North America. There were two regions known as the Chesapeake and the New England. There were some similarities in this both region; speaking English and both coming from England…etc., but also both region had many differences between them with their own unique identities.
