Jamestown, Virginia vs. Massachusetts Bay Settlements In the early 1600s, Jamestown, Virginia and Plymouth, Massachusetts were two of the first successful English colonies in North America. Jamestown was established in 1607 and the Massachusetts Bay migration began in 1630. Although the two settlements occurred over twenty years apart from each other, they shared quit a few similarities in their early settlement experiences. For both settlements, the early years were very difficult, facing the harsh winter weather, disease, sickness, famine and conflict with the natives.

Well he was a hard worker in his crew, well that’s what the people say, besides that, the time was bad because supposedly there were 214 or 215 people on board and only 60 of them ever made it to land. Which people back then and maybe now called it Jamestown, now Jamestown was a fort-like place were food for the crew were bad like expired meat, or 6 day old beans, let’s just say it wasn’t heaven. Except for the captain or the head ranks because they got the good food such as fresh meat, spices, few minute made soup or everything that isn’t fungi attacked. Now John Smith was not just a regular man who didn’t help his crew but also a writer of his own journey and adventure, so he embarks on a mystery land with a Native Americans, which he does not know about.

Following this, a trend of spring arrivals to fish through summer and returning to Europe began, which became the basis of Newfoundland Economy (73). Although Pilgrims were starving in New England during 1621 due to lack of knowledge of fishing, hunting, and farming, not until they know how to fish, the first successful Pilgrim crop was due to using fish waste as fertilizer
On February 2, 1766, forty-one days after his ship had left Boston's harbor, the Indian Samson Occom recorded in his diary, "About 10 in the morning, we discovered the land of England." Almost three centuries after Columbus had brought news of the existence of a New World to Europe, a descendant of the people who had met the explorer on its shores had embarked on his own voyage of discovery. However, by the mid-eighteenth century, Indians were not the only North Americans for whom Britain was a strange and distant land. Although emigration to the colonies continued to be an important factor in the rapid growth of North America throughout the eighteenth century, after 1700 the birth-rate was by far the most significant element in the spectacular
