Chapter 5 Section 4 Notes

  1. 1. Section 4 Notes
  2. 2.  The DUTCH had established New Netherland along the mid-Atlantic coast in 1621 mainly as a TRADING POST.  In 1655, the DUTCH seized NEW SWEDEN, a Swedish colony to the south, and made it part of New Netherland.  In 1664, the DUKE OF YORK led an army that seized NEW NETHERLAND for the English. His brother, King Charles II, renamed the colony New York.  England let the DUTCH settlers keep their land, religion, and customs. The new colony also allowed RELIGIOUS FREEDOM to all.
  3. 3.  The DUKE OF YORK gave some of New York to two friends, Lord John Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. The area was named NEW JERSEY after Carteret’s birthplace in England.  NEW JERSEY became a royal colony in 1702.
  4. 4.  The QUAKERS were another religious group that faced persecution in England. QUAKERS believed all people were equal, and they opposed WAR and VIOLENCE.  In 1681, WILLIAM PENN, a QUAKER, was granted land in North America. PENN named the land PENNSYLVANIA and made it a haven for QUAKERS and all other groups seeking to live freely.  To gain access to the sea, PENNSYLVANIA soon joined with three counties on the Delaware River. The counties later broke away to form the separate colony of DELAWARE.
