New England Colonies. Settling New England. The colonies were first settled only slightly later than the Chesapeake colonies, bur for a variety of reasons developed into extremely different places. THESIS: for a variety of reasons, the New England colonies developed very differently than the Chesapeake. Foremast among those reasons is who came to New England and why, what they wanted to create and what happened to their society and economy. Despite these differences, the New England and Chesapeake shared some similarities. Our job is to recognize these similarities and differences and to use them to more fully understand both regions. THE FORMULA: the most fundamental change in time in the New England colonies is the shift form Puritan to Yankee. Where the Chesapeake began chaotically and ended strongly, the reverse is true of New England. The New England colonies began strongly as Puritan experiment only to see that experiment die and conflict increase as land and population pressures increased. While the Chesapeake became more stable over time, New England became less stable.
