The Puritans, http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/english/melani/english2/puritans_intro.html
Men who followed the church and were "chosen" were allowed to vote. A male might have the occupation of minister, cooper, hunter, miller, tanner, furrier, surveyor, farmer, etc.
Women were not allowed to vote or make decisions in the church. They worked in the home and the garden.
the literacy rate amongst Puritans was rather high due to the fact that they wanted their children to be able to read the Bible. If a community in Massachusetts had 50 families or more, a school supported by taxes was mandatory.
