photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli By: Bailey Seidl, Robert Chase & Joaquim Martinez New England in the 1690's What type of people settled Massachusetts? English Puritans were the type of people that settled Massachusetts in the 1690's. These people lived by the teachings of John Calivn, and were called "Calivinists". A Calivinist also did not go to the church of England because they only went by the teachings of John Calivn. Before settling New England, many of these people lived in the Netherlands. Other settlers came later for economic reasons. How did they survive? They had survived by growing crops, working on farms. and also by opening little shops and selling products, such as wood, iron, grouse, and other daily needs to live. they also had hunted animals as did the Indians, and sometimes even had encounters with them, and were even killed. What were their main fears and anxieties? Fear was the whole reason why the Salem witch trials began. The main focus of fear was basically paranoia going through the witch trials since they didn't know what to believe. Another main focus was the Bible. Since the Bible says that all witches should be killed, they are gonna believe in the Bible since they are in a theocracy. What can you find out about their social structures/hierarchies? New England was a democracy where all male adults met in town meetings. Leaders were elected and the colony was defended by a militia, where all adult males served. The democracy was put aside as the colonies grew. By the time of the Revolution, Massachusetts was made up of merchants and high ranking tradesmen on the higher end of the political spectrum, while the poor farmers were on the lower end. The position of the Church leaders was a feature of New English life. Since the people believed God was their supreme lord, they had no choice but to obey the words of the clergy.
