Rhode Island, founded by Roger Williams, was never a royal colony. It was self-governed from its founding as a squatter colony in 1636 (with charters in 1644 and 1663). Roger Williams was a religious dissenter from the Puritan Massachusetts Bay Colony. He founded his colony as a place of opportunity and religious toleration for all peoples. Rhode Island had no tax-supported church backed by the colonial government, which was rare for a British colony at the time. The settlements in William's colony were viewed as garbage by Puritans in the Bay Colony who referred to Rhode Island as "that sewer."
