Question 2: What were the “push and pull” factors for immigrants coming to each region of the English Colonies? There were many different push and pull factors for immigrants coming from England. One group that came from England was the extreme Puritans, or the Separatists. One push factor for the Separatists of England was separation from the Church of England. The Separatists left the Church of England due to the fact that the new King of England was in charge of the church with help from his royal subjects. The Separatists were angered, and left the church because they believed that “visible saints” should rule the church. Another push factor would be that King James I threatened to harass the Separatists out of the land. One pull factor for the Separatists was religious freedom. Religion was an immense controversy in England. Another pull factor for the Separatists would be the needed land for worshiping. They believed that the New World would be able to accommodate to their needs. Fortunately for them, the New World was able to help. Unfortunately for them, they did not have a legal right to be on the land or create a government. A different Puritan group, the moderate Puritans, decided to take a different approach to the situation with the Church of England. They wanted to solve the issue with the church from within its walls. One push factor would be when the moderate Puritans had support from Parliament until King James I dismissed Parliament in 1629, destroying the chance for the change of the Church of England to the Puritan lifestyle. The pull for the moderate Puritans, like the Separatists, was land to practice their religion. They, on the other hand, had a royal charter, the Massachusetts Bay Charter, that granted them land for settlement. They decided to colonize present day Massachusetts, and create the city of Boston. Finally, the Dutch had push and pull factors for colonization of the English Colonies. One push factor for
