It was spawned from the Massachusetts colony. There were two factors: dissension, and expansion. They were fighting among themselves, and they needed more room. As early as 1633, Puritans and Pilgrims migrated into the Connecticut River Valley, drawn by the vast forests. In 1636, the Puritan ministe…r Thomas Hooker moved three congregations to this valley, establishing the towns of Hartford, Wethersfield and Windsor. The Connecticut charter was more democratic in form, allowing people to vote without church membership. This was one of the first instances of separation of church and state. ( Full Answer )

The establishment of Connecticut was largely due to the result of the Pequot War that decimated the tribal presence in the Connecticut valley and their demise led colonists from Massachusetts to settle the area. The first English settlers in 1633 settled at Windsor, and then in 1634 at Wethersfie…ld. John Winthrop received permission to establish a separate colony at Old Saybrook in 1635, and the main body of settlers came in one large group in 1636. ( Full Answer )

In the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 this compromise was put forward to end the conflict between the big states and the small states, It provided for the bicameral legislative branch that we have today, giving the states equal representation in the Senate and proportional representation in the Hou…se of Representatives. The Connecticut Compromise arose from two plans: The Virginia Plan and The New Jersey Plan. The Virginia Plan proposed that the members of the legislature should be allocated by state population and the New Jersey Plan proposed that state legislature seats should be allocated without regard to population, to make it more representative for smaller states. Fusing these two plans, The Connecticut Compromise allocated seats in the Senate equally among states, allowing two Senators in Congress per state while allocating seats in the House of Representative according to population of states, but at least one per state.

Connecticut was founded by Thomas Hooker, a Massachusetts Bay Puritan Minister. This probably occurred sometime between 1616 and 1647, when Hooker died. Hooker's exact date of birth does not seem to be known. Hooker was the second Puritan leader to leave the Massachusetts Colony after Roger Williams…. Williams founded Rhode Island. Hooker, and his followers went on to the land area now known as Connecticut to establish a colony practicing their modified version of the Puritan theology, allowing for greater tolerance and greater freedom for the congregation than that practiced in Massachusetts.

Yes Connecticut did have slavery. Oh and you don't have to read all of it,you can just read up to where you see the word Connecticut. Northern slavery grew out of the paradox the new continent presented to its European masters. So much land was available, so cheaply, that no one was willing to c…ome to America and sign on to work as a laborer. The dream that drew Europeans across the Atlantic was owning acres of land or making a fortune in a trade or a craft. It was an attainable dream. In the 1680s a landless Welsh peasant from the mountains of Montgomeryshire could bring his whole family to Pennsylvania for Â£10 and acquire 250 acres for another Â£5; placing just one son in a trade in Britain would have cost the family Â£7. Yet workers were needed in the new continent to clear the land, work the soil, build the towns. Because of this acute labor shortage, all the American colonies turned to compulsory labor. In New Netherland, in the 1640s, a free European worker could be hired for 280 guilders a year, plus food and lodging. In the same time and place, experienced African slaves from the West Indies could be bought outright, for life, for 300 guilders. "To claim that the colonies would not have survived without slaves would be a distortion," historian Edgar McManus writes, "but there can be no doubt that the development was significantly speeded by their labor. They provided the basic working force that transformed shaky outposts of empire into areas of permanent settlement." Or, to consider the situation from a broad view of the entire New World, "... export agriculture and effective colonization would not have occurred on the scale it did if enslaved Africans had not been brought to the New World. Except for precious metals, almost all major American exports to Europe were produced by Africans." Early in the 17th century, black slave status in the British Americas was not quite absolute bondage. It was a nebulous condition similar to that of indentured servants. Some Africans brought to America were regarded as "servants" eligible for freedom a certain number of years. Slavery had been on the decline in England, and in most of Europe generally, since the Middle Ages. That may be why the legal definition of slavery as perpetual servitude for blacks and their children was not immediately established in the New World colonies. The first official legal recognition of chattel slavery as a legal institution in British North America was in Massachusetts, in 1641, with the "Body of Liberties." Slavery was legalized in New Plymouth and Connecticut when it was incorporated into the Articles of the New England Confederation (1643). Rhode Island enacted a similar law in 1652. That means New England had formal, legal slavery a full generation before it was established in the South. Not until 1664 did Maryland declare that all blacks held in the colony, and all those imported in the future, would serve for life, as would their offspring. Virginia followed suit by the end of the decade. New York and New Jersey acquired legal slavery when they passed to English control in the 1660s. Pennsylvania, founded only in 1682, followed in 1700, with a law for regulation of servants and slaves. Roughly speaking, slavery in the North can be divided into two regions. New England slaves numbered only about 1,000 in 1708, but that rose to more than 5,000 in 1730 and about 13,000 by 1750. New England also was the center of the slave trade in the colonies, supplying captive Africans to the South and the Caribbean island. Black slaves were a valuable shipping commodity that soon proved useful at home, both in large-scale agriculture and in ship-building. The Mid-Atlantic colonies (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania) had been under Dutch rule before the British conquered them in 1664. African slavery in the middle colonies had been actively encouraged by the Dutch authorities, and this was continued by the British. Both the Dutch and English colonists in the North preferred to get their slaves from other New World colonies rather than directly from Africa . Direct imports from Africa were considered too dangerous and difficult. Instead, the middle colonies sought their African slaves from Dutch CuraÃ§ao and later from British Jamaica and Barbados. "These slaves were familiar with Western customs and habits of work, qualities highly prized in a region where masters and slaves worked and lived in close proximity." Having survived one climate change already, they also adjusted better to Northern winters, which incapacitated or killed those direct from Africa. Both causes contributed to the adjective often used to advertise West Indies slaves being sold in the North: "seasoned." By the late colonial period, the average slave-owning household in New England and the Mid-Atlantic seems to have had about 2 slaves. Estates of 50 or 60 slaves were rare, though they did exist in the Hudson Valley, eastern Connecticut, and the Narragansett region of Rhode Island. But the Northern climate set some barriers to large-scale agricultural slavery. The long winters, which brought no income on Northern farms, made slaves a burden for many months of the year unless they could be hired out to chop wood or tend livestock. In contrast to Southern plantation slavery, Northern slavery tended to be urban.. Slaveholding reflected social as well as economic standing, for in colonial times servants and retainers were visible symbols of rank and distinction. The leading families of Massachusetts and Connecticut used slaves as domestic servants, and in Rhode Island, no prominent household was complete without a large staff of black retainers. New York's rural gentry regarded the possession of black coachmen and footmen as an unmistakable sign of social standing. In Boston, Philadelphia, and New York the mercantile elite kept retinues of household slaves. Their example was followed by tradesmen and small retailers until most houses of substance had at least one or two domestics. . There is argument among historians about the economic role of Northern slaves. Some maintain that New England slaves generally were held in situations where they did not do real work, such as might be done by a white laborer, and that many, if not most, of the New England slaves were held without economic justification, working as house servants or valets. Even in Pennsylvania, the mounting Pennsylvania Quaker testimony against slavery in the 1750s and '60s was in large part aimed against the luxuriousness and extravagance of the Friends who had domestic slaves. But other historians who have studied the matter in some depth (Greene, McManus, Melish) make a forceful case for slave labor being an integral part of the New England economy. And even those slaves who did the arduous work required in a colonial household freed their white owners to pursue careers in law, religion, medicine or civil service. I really hope this helps!
