Algonquian Indians were the first settlers in the region of Massachusetts. The first English explorer in Massachusetts was Bartholomew Gosnold, who visited the area in 1602. In 1620, the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. In 1629, King Charles I of Great Britain granted a charter to the Puritans to establish an English colony in Massachusetts Bay.
