Massachusetts' First Settlements . Most people think it was Pilgrims and Puritans, but there is evidence some small settlements were established before that. One historian (Robert J. Allison) suggests that there were ships that arrived in Massachusetts as early as 1617. In 1624, a gentleman named… Samuel Maverick built a trading post near what is today called Boston Harbor; in 1626, William Blackstone arrived and tried to set up a settlment in Wessagusset (today Weymouth); he remained in the New World after the settlement did not survive, and he was still living not far from Maverick's outpost when the major European excursions to Massachusetts began in 1630.. But I guess the short answer is that the first permanent settlement was founded by John Winthrop-- he was a British lawyer who led his expedition to establish a religious settlement, a "community of saints," a "city on a hill" that would be a model for other cities in the New World. He became the first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and is thus credited with having set up the first permanent settlement, although the other two gentlemen seem to have had little outposts...

When colonists came to America( the thirteen colonies back them) most of them were christian from living in Britain and pract…iced what they believed in strongly. However not all of them where Christians. Slaves were even brought to the colonies because they were forced to. Colonists decided to build settlements in areas that were useful. Such as the southern colonies were was most of the crops were grown there because there was good top soil. Some land was given from king Charles the third. Even so governors were decided on from Britain and were known as loyalists. Those who believed in freedom were called patriots. Britain taxed the colonies with many laws such as the stamp act, the intolerable acts, the tea act. Britain government called parliament said no taxation without representation. Colonists boycotted Britain goods such as Samuel Adams organized the sons of liberty who also lead the Boston tea party, dressed as Mohawk Indians. Before that though Britain sent warships to the colonies filled with soldiers who came to convince colonists to stop protesting. All this action happened because Britain was broke from the French Indian war so they started to tax the colonies.
