The New England the Middle and the Southern colonies each had their own motives for moving to North America. Each of them had both religious and economical reasons, and each their own separate ideas about freedom.
Religion was a major motive for people to move to the Americas. The New England colonies were made up of puritans. They wanted to purify the English church and do away with Catholic practices. They believed that this would make a utopia, a place of ideal perfection. On the other hand there were also people who were still loyal to the English church. These Catholics settled in the South. They came mainly for the economics. Finally there were the Quakers who settled in the

Darwin had proved that all breeds of life have derived from a common ancestor. The modern differences however to these breeds are the product of the influences brought by their changing environments. This concept largely applies to the differences in the societies belonging to the Chesapeake and New England regions. These settlements, although originated from a common area, had by 1700 grown into two dissimilar societies, each with their own distinct features. Their unique environments filled with their own ideas for government, views on religion, economy, and structure for social life produced a grand difference in the development of the regions. Although they both derived of an English

Historical fiction, generally, exposes readers to a historic event through a new lens—often from a first-person perspective. The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, by M.T. Anderson, does a remarkable job illustrating a unique, though fictional, perspective of the revolution in New England through the eyes of an experiment: Octavian Nothing. While written with an adolescent audience in mind, Octavian Nothing offers great insight to the transitional period between racial attitudes in American society for all readers. Through the narrative, readers uncover a raw illustration of the evolution of historical prejudices and tensions in New England—specifically, pertaining to the usages and

Differences Among Colonial Virginia and New England
When analyzing Colonial America you will see a vast difference in each settled colony. There are many factors that differentiate life in colonial New England and life in colonial Virginia. Major differences can be found anywhere from their initial reasons for founding to their patterns of settlement over the years. (McCreight, Karen) Also, many differences can be seen in their “religions, politics, economics, and social issues.” (Hagen, Thomas) Despite their first settlement being founded only thirteen short years apart, Virginia and New England were very different.

States is also a Sovereign state because it is not run by anyone or any place but the people and representatives that live there. That leads to the last reason why the United States is a state which is that it has its own centralized government that creates and enforces the laws of the country. The United States was also created under the Social Contract Theory which states that the state arose out of a voluntary act of free people. This was the case for the United States during the Revolutionary War as we tried to break away from England. The United Kingdom is also considered an independent state because it meets the requirements that every state must have. These requirements are it

The New England and Chesapeake regions were two of the major areas for colonization in the 17th century. From the early 1600's into the early 1700's, many English immigrants left their homeland to explore an uncharted territory. The two geographic regions, one nestled in the warm muggy weather of the South and the other in the harsh climate of the North, lead to various different experiences and obstacles for the settlers to face, and to different lifestyles in the colonies. Through economy, religious persecution, and geographic location, the colonies became distinctly different. But even through all of their differences, the colonies in both of these regions did have some key aspects in

Meeting the Demand for Clergy in Victorian England
Many new changes came to Victorian England as a result of the age of industrialization. Where there were once small country parishes, manufacturing towns were springing up. One change resulting from industrialization was the shortage of clergy to fill the new parishes in these towns. These new parishes reflect the demographic changes of the English countryside. Rural villages grew into booming towns. Where a single parish was once sufficient, there was now a need for multiple parishes. The Church of England went about meeting these demands for new clergy in two major ways, actively recruiting men to the clergy and restructuring

In modern society women have equal respect from men. Women do not need to be compliant to men and are free to express themselves. Although some pockets of discrimination exist in present-day society, it was not the same in Elizabethan England The disrespect that women received was unparalleled. Different levels of society bolstered this dramatic inequality of people, especially women to new heights. William Shakespeare writes influential books on the life of people living in Europe in the Elizabethan time period. William Shakespeare's Othello shows the identity of women to portray the injustice of unequal status of women expecting them to be blindly obedient to men.

The two colonies of Virginia and New England were vastly different but not without similarities. While New Englanders came almost purely for religious reasons, Virginians came to make a profit. While New Englanders had a balanced economy, Virginia's economy was based on the exportation of tobacco. But the two colonies were similar in that they were, to a point, self-governing. The Puritans came to settle in the colonies to escape from the religious persecution they were experiencing back at England. They also came so that they could set up their own way of worship. To that end they brought their entire family over and started building their colony from the beginning. The Virginians

The Roman Catholic Church was widely unchallenged in England until 1533. It was at this point that the annulment of King Henry VIII’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon was denied. Henry VIII proceeded to sever all ties with Rome and in doing so turned his back on the many centuries of tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, an action which would, over the following 3 centuries, cause much unrest and political upheaval. It is at this point then that the dissent from the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church in England began.

The Social Consequences of the Changes in 18-century Rural England
During the 18th century, there was a drastic change within England;
this was all due to the introduction of Parliamentary Enclosure. The
act, although very controversial, was passed in 'national interest'.
The reason it was so controversial was that an act passed in the
'national interest' should have taken into consideration the people it
affected the most, but the majority (commoners) who it severely
affected were not consulted. The commoner's rights and land was taken
by enclosure, and the compensation they received was minimal. Thompson

Compare sources A and B as evidence for Henry VII’s claim to the throne of England 
On comparing sources A and B as evidence for Henry VII’s claim to the throne in 1485, it can be said both have relevant use as both give an account of events at the time of Henry VII’s coronation. However it is questionable how reliable each of the two sources are because of the position of the authors in relation to King Henry VII and their willingness to stay loyal.
A key factor which makes sources A and B useful as evidence for Henry VII’s claim to the throne is the background of each of the authors. Source A was written by an unknown English author and Tudor Cleric, commonly now known as “Psuedo

The monologue of John of Gaunt delves into the perilous nature of unfettered autocracy. Gaunt proclaims that King Richard should relinquish his crown because he has figuratively raped "mother" England by exploiting the loyalty of his subjects and debasing the grandeur of "this blessed plot" for his own personal glory. The speech enables the reader to look into the character of Gaunt and his relationship with Richard.

At the start of the 17th century, England was ruled almost entirely by gentlemen – those who could live everyday life without an ounce of manual labor. Even Englishmen who were not extremely poor, such as merchants or small land-owners, had little influence on politics. Due to primogeniture laws, younger sons could not inherit any land from their fathers. The New World was their solution, their hope to building their fortune. As these Englishmen, rich or poor, traveled to the colonies across the Atlantic, they brought with them English culture. The colonies in New England, Middle Colonies, and Southern Colonies all attracted Englishmen and therefore aspects of English culture. However, the

The re-emergence of the Jewish community in England under Oliver Cromwell in 1656 may be seen as a landmark in the development of multicultural Britain. After the Norman Conquest of 1066, William the Conqueror encouraged the Jewish population of Normandy to come to England. Relations were initially peaceful, but in the 12th and 13th centuries Jews suffered increasing persecution, culminating in their expulsion in 1290. Clustering first in London, Jewish settlers soon spread to other towns across England and Wales. They were granted freedom of movement, but the king had the right to tax them as part of his personal income whenever he wished. The early years of settlement were fairly peaceful

During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the economic theory utilized by Great Britain towards its empire was known as mercantilism. The idea behind mercantilism was to amass wealth through a favorable balance of trade, or exporting more goods than were imported. Within the idea of mercantilism, the colonies were meant to be a source of raw materials and a market for manufactured products. Even though the mercantile theory seemed to prosper between England and the colonies, the underlying resentment from the colonies towards it and its negative effects on them eventually led to its failure.The mercantile theory dictated both the visible and invisible trades throughout the colonies

Descendants of Viking raiders, the Normans eventually came to settle in a region in the northern portion of France. Before long, they developed their own culture and grew in might.

Journalist Alistair Cooke wrote, “People, when they first come to America, whether as travelers or settlers, become aware of a new and agreeable feeling: that the whole country is their oyster.” This proved to be true with the Puritans and their arrival in the new world.

The new land provided so many opportunities yet to be discovered. The new life seemed so promising. With the new opportunities came potential for disaster as well.

Regardless of England’s delayed arrival to the New World, they quickly became the dominant power across the Atlantic.

As a consequence of the religious persecutions evident in Europe, a minute group of Separatists, the Pilgrims, fled their residences and established a safe haven in America. However, hypocrisy prevailed in the colonies where religious persecutions, conducted by the oppressed Pilgrims persisted, thus promoting further colonial establishments.

Early cricket was at some time or another described as "a club striking a ball (like) the ancient games of club-ball, stool-ball, trap-ball, stob-ball". Cricket can definitely be traced back to Tudor times in early 16th-century England. Written evidence exists of a game known as creag being played by Prince Edward, the son of Edward I (Longshanks), at Newenden, Kent in 1301 and there has been speculation, but no evidence, that this was a form of cricket.

The colonization of the “New World” by the British rapidly spread along the Atlantic Ocean forming distinct Northern and Southern colonies. Although the colonists came from the same region, they travelled to American for varying reasons. Northern colonists, like the Puritans and the Baptists, founded the New England colonies based upon religious freedom while Southern colonists, like the Virginia Company, founded the Virginia/Chesapeake colonies hoping to gain quick profits. Each colony faces its own turmoil and conflicts, yet after the Seven Years War and the Great Awakening, the colonists in British North America began developing a common identity as “Americans.”

Normandy is a coastal district in France that lies almost directly across from England.

Although the Norman population would be largely Scandinavian in origin during the ninth and tenth centuries, it would shift in the century spanning 966 to 1066 to a largely French population (Baugh, 1959, p. 128).

Great Britain is made up of three countries, England, Scotland and Wales. It is an island off the coast of northwest of Europe. Britain is part of the United Kingdom of Britain and Northern Ireland. The capital is London.
There are many different landscapes in Britain, from high mountains to rolling hill sand valleys. Places like Wales, the Lake District and northwest Scotland have high mountains and steep slopes made out of solid rocks.
This landscape was made millions of years ago during the ice ages, when moving glaciers of ice made deep valleys, steep mountain slopes and long lakes. The southern and eastern parts of Britain are made up of smaller rocks that have
