It was granted to William Penn in lieu of money as payment of debt that was owed to his father. He embraced the Quaker lifestyle and made Pennsylvania a haven for Quakers and religious liberties.
Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn. He did not fully agree with the Puritans so he became a Quaker. Quakers are people who do not like war.
