New England!


WordPress picture New England ChurchIn one of the earliest English settlements in North America, Pilgrims from England first settled in New England in 1620, to form Plymouth Colony. Ten years later, the Puritans settled north of Plymouth Colony in Boston, thus forming Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630. Over the next 130 years, New England participated in four French and Indian Wars, until the British defeated the French and their native allies in North America. In the late 18th century, the New England Colonies initiated the resistance to the British Parliament’s efforts to impose new taxes without the consent of the colonists. The Boston Tea Party was a protest that angered Great Britain, which responded with the Coercive Acts, stripping the colonies of self-government. The confrontation led to open warfare in 1775, the expulsion of the British from New England in spring 1776, and the Declaration of Independence in July 1776. Tags: Robert Hess Blog!

The first burying ground in Boston was the King’s Chapel Cemetery: For in the south-west corner of it, Isaac Johnson, the owner of a large tract there, was buried at his particular request. “He was a prime man among us, and made a godly end,” Governor Winthrop remarked. Indeed, he was the principal founder of Boston – the fidus Achates of Winthrop, and was looked up to by him and the colonists as a guide. Mr. Johnson was the happy partner of Lady Arbella, whose early and untimely death was deeply lamented. He followed her in death on September 30, 1629, before the name of Tri-mountain was changed to Boston, which was September 7, 1630.
