Best Answer
Thomas HookerOne hundred settlers, led by the Minister Thomas Hooker, set up a new colony in Connecticut. These new settlers rejected the autocratic rule of the Puritans in Massachusetts. This new colony was founded in Hartford, Connecticut in 1635 by Rev. Thomas Hooker. Three years later, the settlers drafted a document known as "The Fundamental Orders." It became the basis of the eventual constitution of the state.
