Early English Settlement

Directions:

*For the ‘study questions,’ as you probably know through past quizzes, the content of the True/False (and also fill-in-the-blank, and multiple choice questions to be found in your midterm) can be derived from these questions. Furthermore, they could also serve as short essay questions. So work on these study questions accordingly.


*For the historical terms, please make sure to define and understand its relation to the main topic at hand (why is this term important for this topic). Many of these terms will likely find its way into the midterm as a ‘fill-in-the-blank’

Topic 2: Early English Settlement

Study questions:

-In what ways did the English approach to settlement in the New World differ from earlier Europeans? How did such differences go on to shape the ‘American‘ worldview?

-explain each factor (push and pull) involved in English migration to the New World during the 1600s.

-How did early capitalism, the enclosure movement, and Malthusian conditions shape the migration of indentured servants (English voluntary slaves) to the New World?

-What were 2 major colonial crises during 17th century colonial America that were discussed in lecture, and how can they be analyzed in terms of race, gender, and/or class?

-explain how the Puritan beliefs in predestination and “visible sainthood” connected with the belief in hard work and economic mobility (aka “capitalist ethos”).

-discuss the meaning of land in the English worldview during this time, and how this connected to political status.

-Compare and contrast the 3 variants of early English settlement in terms of demographics and population, economics, politics (where applicable); religion (where applicable). Hint: think of things like “what kind of agricultural systems did they use”; “what was the ratio between genders”? “which variants had more whole families migrate”? “which variants were more influenced by religion rather than economics”? And others….

-explain the details of the economic theory and practice of ‘mercantilism,’ and this connects with rivalry among empires during the Age of European imperialism.

Historical Terms: push vs pull factors in human migration (generally-speaking); joint-stock company; indentured servitude; “city upon a hill”; subsistence-plus farming; visible sainthood and predestination; covenant of grace; Anne Hutchinson; Malthusian conditions

Textbook questions:

-What are the Navigation Acts? Important: connect the Acts to the theory and practice of ‘mercantilism’ as discussed in lecture.

-how was slavery looked at by William Penn and the Quakers in Pennsylvania? What was Penn’s ideal vision for his colony?

-Read the primary source titled “Recruiting Settlers to Carolina, 1666” (primary sources are found at the end of the chapter). What was the ‘head-right’ system like for the Carolina region? Why would newly-freed indentured servants want to settle in Carolina? (important: in lecture, I discussed the head-right system in Virginia, so this question asks you to compare both head-right systems).
