The British tried to control the colonists through Navigation Acts. Navigation Acts are the British's law saying the colonist could only trade with Great Britain.

What type of relationship developed between the colonies and their managers in England that led to the colonists feeling free to develop as they saw fit?
British North American colonies were more often than not administered on the basis of "indirect rule" from London. As such, the colonies were largely self-governed and answered to charter holders and company owners rather than the British Crown. Laws and taxes passed in the homeland by Parliament were made exceedingly more lenient when applied to the colonies, and some were not even enforced at all.
