wat r some reasons 2 live in massachusetts in the 1600's GOOD STUFF ...... i found a few things but not much

Jim K :
"Apparently, to get away from England, but it wasn't an easy life. Half of the 102 passengers on the Mayflower died during the first winter."
Joseph, II :
"Well let's see... Most of your neighbors were probably indians (friendly ones- seeing as how they ended up being invited by the Pilgrims to their first Thanksgiving!). You had all the Land you could ask for to farm on (as LONG as you had the Backbone to clear the trees & haul out the boulders). And, the nearest "governing body" was over 2,500 miles away in England- so you didn't have anyone telling you "what to do" (YET), or how much taxes you owed... It must've been a tough life- but SOMEONE had to do it (or you wouldn't be here reading THIS- today!)... :)"

"To get away from England? And to be "free"?"
DoH :
"Pilgrims came for freedom of religion. In England their highly conservative beliefs were frowned upon, they came to the "new world" in order to practice their religious beliefs without persecution from their neighbors. Funny that the founding fathers of Massachusetts were highly conservative, today MA is the most liberal state in the country. The Pilgrims ended up in Massachusetts because they were essentially lost trying to find Virginia. The first landed at what is now Provincetown on Cape Cod, but relocated to Plymouth. Reality is you were sick of being at sea, the ship is running out of fresh water, food etc... you stop, you stay. There were no roads, grocery stores etc.. so it wasn't a simple task to replenish the ships supplies and look for a better place. I believe they took the mayflower apart to build houses?"
nana1160 :
"well at the time it was a case of taxes,everybody in England had to pay alot of taxes, so sailing they went looking for the cove in Virginia they were hungry and lost thats what brought them to mass. i live in plymouth mass i just went on the 2 nd mayflower this summer, so fire away i even have 150 pics ,lol so my niece from oklahoma went a little nuts. so no taxes and freedom are the 2 main reasons"
