Transcript of North and South Carolina

In 1663, King Charles II issued charters that created a large colony south of Virginia called Carolina. King Charles II gave this land to eight Lord Proprietors who carved out large estates for themselves. They then provided money to bring colonists over from England. Background Information! However, it did not develop according to plan and in 1719 the settlers wanted a greater role in the government. In 1729, the British government bought seven out of eight of the Lord Proprietors and the colony split and became two royal colonies. Come to Carolina! Grow and sell crops, tobacco, indigo, cotton, lumber, furs, cattle, and rice. Economic Profile These people are not dominated to a specific religion which gives way to religious freedom.
