  2. 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.

NORTH CAROLINA was settled by people from Virginia, and SOUTH CAROLINA attracted settlers from the West Indies, England, and other parts of Europe.

  8. 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.
