Colonial Brief History
In 1620 the Mayflower landed on the shores of Massachusetts with pilgrims aboard. They named their site Plymouth after the port they left from.Their first Governor John Carver died a year later. His successor William Bradford overcame early difficulties. It even helped the colony grow and develop more successfully.

Later on, the Massachusetts colony began establishing trading posts. The Puritans were primarily farmers back then. In addition, in 1629, King Charles I decided to take actions against the Puritans. John Winthrop then helped out the Massachusetts colony and then became its governor.
Massachusetts was founded because British people wanted to have a settlement in the New World, they wanted a settlement above North Virginia Region, but it was taken, so the British went back to England discouraged. Later pilgrims were the first English people to colonize the land they called New England, but it is now called Massachusetts today. In addition, another reason they want to settle in Massachusetts is because they want to live independently to practice their religion freely in the New World.
