Transcript

  • 1. Section 5 Notes Chapter 5
  • 2. Maryland, a Religious Refuge  Like other religious groups in England, ROMAN CATHOLICS sought a place of refuge in America. In 1633, CECIL CALVERT founded the colony of MARYLAND for both Protestants and Catholics.  Protestants soon outnumbered Catholics in the colony. MARYLAND’S leaders responded by issuing the TOLERATION ACT in 1649. This law guaranteed all Christians the right to worship as they pleased.

  • 6. The Two Carolinas  In 1663 King Charles II granted eight English nobles a large tract of land south of VIRGINIA. The nobles named the land CAROLINA, the Latin form of CHARLES.  From the beginning, the land was divided naturally into 2 regions. NORTH CAROLINA was settled by people from Virginia, and SOUTH CAROLINA attracted settlers from the West Indies, England, and other parts of Europe.

  • 8. Georgia, a Colony for the Poor  JAMES OGLETHORPE founded the colony of GEORGIA in 1732 as a refuge for England’s poor and those serving time in debtor’s prison.  OGLETHORPE set strict lifestyle rules in the colony. He limited land ownership and forbade the use of liquor. As a result, few people wanted to come to GEORGIA, and the colony grew slowly.
