Jersey is one of the Channel Islands lying off the coast of Normandy, France, the last remnants of the old Duchy of Normandy and coming under the British Crown but not the UK government. In the Civil War of the 17th century, Jersey remained loyal to the King, and the De Carteret family actually helped the King's son to escape after his father was beheaded. When the son in question returned to England and was crowned Charles II, he rewarded the De Carterets by giving them a large tract of land in the New World. This they christened New Jersey.
Incidentally, the De Carteret family is still living in Jersey, still in the same Manor House they built after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
New Jersey was one of the 13 colones, so it was England.
The reason for the founding of New Hampshire was for farming. The New England colony was founded in 1692 by John Mason.
He was a law student from New Jersey that was one of New Jersey's representative's in the constitutional convention.
For the same reason there is a "New England". There is a place in England called Jersey so when the Americas were settled, New Jersey was born.
th reason was that they wanted to colonize and move onto new land
It was intended to become a fishing colony.
