New England in 1690's
What kind of people settled in the 1690's?
The Puritans, a religious group, were the people who settled in New England in the 1690's. There was two types of Puritans but these were the ones who believed in reform but not separation. Religion was the framework of their society.They believed that the bible was their law and they must obey every word. They believed the church and state operated as one.

Witchcraft in the 1690's
The Puritans believed that you could sign your soul away to Satan for supernatural powers.
Any one who was thought to be a witch had to go to trial. If they pleaded non-guilty and lost the trial they were killed, if they pleaded guilty, they lost all of their property but their life was spared.

How did they survive?
At first the puritans just barely survived. The holiday of Thanksgiving was a celebration of surviving the first year. Puritans were unprepared for the severe cold of winters. During the first winter, the Plymouth colony lost half its people. They would have lost more, but the Indians showed the settlers how to use fish to fertilize the soil and other survival skills necessary to live in the new climate.
