New England colonies being founded by the English from East

Anglia, an area in eastern England. Though this was an area

thriving with small towns that they had generally liked, they

decided to flee England due to religious persecution. Hundreds of

men, women and their siblings, came in search of a New World, where

they could practice their beliefs freely. Many came to find a

better standard of living, with self thinking people.
