Why did people come to the american colonies?
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.
