The geography was rocky and the soil was thin. They were along the Charles River, so they had fish, and the forest near by supplied them with wood. That's all I know right now, but when I'm finished with my New England Colonies project I'll probably add more.
Natural resources of Massachusetts Bay Colony included manyvarieties of seafood. There was also wildlife such as deer. Therewere also berries, and nuts growing wild.
\nPretty much any job/work was turned into play. There were contests like who can chop down the most trees (and also did the wood chopping done). There were games like ninepins (also called skittles (not the candy)), gambling, card playing, horseshoes. Kids played games like tag and hide-and seek an…d also checkers. Sometimes they played games similar to football and baseball. Those were always played on cobblestone roads so someone almost always got injured (MORE)

The Massachusetts Bay Company was chartered in March of 1630, with its first ship's sailing to England. They were the John and the Mary. On June 12,1630 they returned and founded the settlement of Dorchester Massachusetts. I hope this helps

because the peoplee were really poor and dumb and couldn't afford to make a new colony
The State of Massachusetts got its name from the Massachusetts Bay which was given its name by the Pilgrim Fathers who founded the Plymouth Colony in 1620. They named the Bay after the the Algonquian Indians whose name was derived from mass-adchu-seuck or 'people from the big hill'.
Common chores were fetching water, gathering firewood, feeding thedomesticated animals, cleaning the animal pens, and cleaninglatrines.
Massachusetts Bay Colony was formed in 1630 by John Winthrop as a safe haven for English Puritan families. Eventually Massachusetts Bay Colony and Plymouth colony joined to become Massachusetts.
Basically, the Chesapeake Bay colonists were there to get rich and then go home, having been told stories of fantastic riches, "rubies and diamonds lying on the beach" being one example. They were close to starvation because everyone was looking for valubles when they could have been farming. Then t…hey made a variant of tobacco and sold that as a cash crop, making lots of money for the people with the land. The New England colony, on the other hand, was made to stay. They (New England colonists) were people who either a) thought the Church of England was too corrupt and wanted to leave England to get away from it, or b) thought the Church of England was too corrupt and wanted to fix it from within by being a good example. The Church of England didn't like people leaving or preaching to them, so both types were kicked out of England and then went to America. (MORE)
The land was hilly. The soil was hard and rocky, which made farming very difficult.

the massachusetts bay colony was founded in 1630 by thomaswinthrop, thomas dudley, and a lot of other non-separatist puritans
most of the jobs that back in the 1750's in Massachusetts were first farming .Second ship building and many more now you find it out.
first there were 2 colonies ma bay colony for puritans and Plymouth for pilgrims then they joined into ma colony
No. Pilgrims and Puritans were different people, and they were not the people we think of when we hear about them. They didn't wear the silly tall hats, shiny buckles, nor black. The one Pilgrim portrait that survives shows a man in a Elizabethan doublet featuring gold buttons, white collar, and bra…ided gold tassel. Neither did they live in log cabins. The log cabin wasn't made until the end of the 17th century. Instead, they were in primitive clapboard houses with thatched roofs. They didn't land on Plymouth Rock. The Puritans absorbed them and had all the attention. As late as 1789 they remained so inconsequential enough that the Plymouth town clergyman ran his field horses through the founder's graveyard crushing tombstones. There was no tradition behind the Pilgrim tradition until 1840 and a speech given by Daniel Webster. It was the Victorians who made them who they were and gave us our vision of what they look like. To this day the Pilgrim's identity is vague and in our ignorance we mistake them with the Puritans. The Pilgrims came in 1620 and the Puritans were 10 years later. (MORE)
Most of the women weaved for clothing and mostly the men did farming and at the night they will go to shool
They got along well with the people from Plymouth Colony, but that's about it. Baptists and Quakers, in particular, were not welcome and were driven out by force, if necessary. Rhode Island became a refuge for all the people the Puritans didn't like.
Not diverse, at all. Most of the settlers who established the Massachusetts Bay Colony were middle-class English Protestants of the Puritan sect. Between 1630 and 1640, approximately 10,000 colonists came to Massachusetts. In 1641, when the English Civil War began, the influx dropped off sharply. I…mmigration was also slowed by the increasing frequency of Indian attacks, which culminated in King Philip's War in 1675. The population continued to multiply rapidly, but from a relatively fixed number of families. The closed nature of Puritan society contributed to their isolation. During the first 50 years, Baptists and Quakers, in particular, and anyone else that the Puritans didn't like, were definitely not welcome in Massachusetts and often driven out by force. Even until the 1850s, a large portion, possibly the majority, of the population of Massachusetts was descended from those original Puritan families. (MORE)
One kind of import is tourism. Exports are cranberries, machinery, scientific instruments, plastic products, food processing, shoes, and textiles.
it prospered because of its whaling and many fish industries who ever doesn't believe me is gonna die in 3 days muahahhahah
They are the same. The Puritans got permission from King Charles 1to build a colony which they named "Massachusetts Bay". Thisremained the full name throughout the colonial period, but the word"Bay" dropped in common parlance. As a result, when MassachusettsBay Colony became the State of Massachuset…ts, "Bay" was droppedaltogether. (MORE)
No it is not the same. One is in the bay is one on land. EDIT: They are the same.
The colony began in 1620 and very few other people were near, so they grew food enough for themselves, hunted, and did what they could to make life comfortable for themselves. Later, fishing, ship building and naval stores will become very important and harbors like Boston shipped and received goods… from/to London . (MORE)
They all were part of the Mid-Atlantic region in North America, as in the United States.
