Answer

There were several reasons why people came to the English colonies in New England. This occurred mostly in the 1600s and was due mostly to the following reasons: - Anglicans, a group of religious extremists who believed in eliminated most recreational aspects of English life, wanted to live in a land of religious freedom - Colonies were being formed all over the world, in which larger countries like Spain, England, Portugal, and France, along with the Dutch, could manipulate the natural resources of the lands to expand trade. The English were doing this in the Americas and so they had people moving to America as workers - Many felt that Europe was overcrowding and saw the Americas as a land of oppurtunity for wealth and prosperity with more land and freedom

It depends on which person was doing the apology. For example, Reverand Hale's came in his book in the early 1700s. Ann Putnam jr's came in 1706. John Hathorne's never came.
