Thesis While New England and the Chesapeake area were settled by people of English origin by 1700 both had developed two distinct societies because of differences in their geography economy religion and communal and family structure Many years after the establishment of the first successful English colonies differences began to appear in the religious social and economic characteristics of New England and the Chesapeake area which would eventually lead to the evolution of two distinct societies The people who settled New England and the Chesapeake area were mostly English Christians who were in some manner either discontent with their homeland or in search of a better life However because of the geography and the economies that developed in each area certain types of people were attracted to different areas They had different values and setup different types of communities In New England a close knit highly organized society developed People were concerned with the affairs of their community and the welfare of its citizens Also the economy while never specializing on a single industry focused on logging shipbuilding and fishing Without the Puritan unity of purpose people of that area worked to better their individual condition rather than focusing on the good of the community In addition the economy which had become chiefly dependent on tobacco made many men wealthy while leaving many more poor Rooted at the base of all of these differences are the physical features of the areas themselves To begin to understand the differences that developed between New England and the Chesapeake area one must first consider the differences in geography and climate that exist between the two New England with its more northerly latitude had a more severe climate change from season to season than the Chesapeake area In addition there were fewer wetlands and resultantly fewer mosquitoes While it made farming less practical this cooler weather and dryer soil did give the New Englanders one advantage
