New England was founded by several different people. John Winthrop was one of the people that founded the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Thomas Hooker founded the Connecticut Colony, and John Mason founded the New Hampshire Colony. Two of the founders of the Rhode Island Colony were Anne Hutchinson and Roger Williams. Of course, all of these people had help from other settlers in getting these colonies to grow and prosper.
