Although the British colonies started later than both the French and Spanish, it quickly outpaced both in North America. The English colonists were better fed, clothed, and housed than their counterparts. One reason for this was that the French and Spanish colonies were characterized by strong central control exercised by the monarchy. It helped them to get off the mark quickly, but in the end hindered innovation and their ability to deal with changing circumstances. Both the French and Spanish empires were vast. The English colonies were tightly grouped along the Atlantic coastline. This provided them with communication and transportation benefits.

In a nut shell the Spanish colonies intergrated with the natives pretty well, when they eventually stopped invadeing there capitols and killing them did the situation get better.

The English colonies up in New England knew that in order to survive in the new world they much befriend the natives and learn from them, but later on when they got powerful (them being the English colonies) killed them and moved them away from the area that the English wanted... which the Indians didn't like.

The Spaniards included the Indians in their culture. They intermarried and used them for labor.

The English however, if not successful at converting the Indians to Christianity, would force them off their land or kill them. They found no use for labor from them, since Indians could easily run away and was not a good source of labor (indentured servants were).
