Who were the Separatists and what motivated them to leave England? : Who were the Separatists and what motivated them to leave England? In the 1530’s King Henry VIII declared himself the head of the Church of England and everyone was expected to follow the ways of the Church of England. The Separatists were the group of people who disagreed with the Church of England and wanted to practice Christianity in their own way. Religious persecution was a consequence of the Separatists’ defiance, meaning that they were treated badly because of their religion. Where did they flee to? : Where did they flee to? England Holland Between 1607 and 1609, several groups of Separatists settled in Holland. In Holland they were able to worship as they pleased, but were unhappy because they felt they were losing their English culture and that they, and their children, were becoming more like the people of Holland. Who were the Pilgrims? : Who were the Pilgrims? In 1620, a group of Separatists decided to leave Holland and settle in Virginia. This group is now known as the Pilgrims because a pilgrim is a person who takes a religious journey. Instead of landing in Virginia, the Pilgrims landed in modern day Massachusetts. They called their new home Plymouth or Plymouth Colony. Before going ashore, the Pilgrims wrote the Mayflower Compact, which was the first time colonists claimed self-government. How did the Pilgrims Survive? : How did the Pilgrims Survive? During their first winter, half of the Plymouth Colonists died from hunger and disease. In the spring of 1621, a local chief, named Squanto, came to the Pilgrims’ Rescue. The Native Americans gave the Pilgrims seeds and showed them how to plant them. They also taught them how to catch eels from nearby rivers.
