Since they were losing these important subjects, they knew that coming to the colonies would benefit them. The colonies had improved housing and were very sanitary, which was what the settlers wanted. While there was a lot of land available and unclaimed, Europeans began to use the land to their advantage. They sought an economic opportunity with all this land they had in their hands. This led to moneymaking.
People were losing jobs in England, and they had hopes in coming to the New World to find work. With much of the land still available in the colonies, it was easy to gain land and colonize. They begin their land by cultivating it much more than they could in England, due to its poor harvest. The colonies thrived with trade, imports, and exports. People in England needed imports from the colonies. If a colony was established on fertile land, and was able to harvest cash crops from it, the workers would earn a great amount of money. People that didn’t have skill could earn this simple money. All they had to do was find fertile land, and they were set.
As a result, there were many factors in why Europeans came to the colonies. They sought a better life and saw themselves having a future. Even though there were many reasons for Europeans to settle in the colonies, land, religious freedom, and economic opportunity seemed to outweigh the others. For these reasons, it increased population in the colonies. Over time, many settled in North America and began a new lifestyle.
