While many fled to the American New England Colonies from religious persecution in England and France in the early 1600s they tended to bring their specific religious beliefs to their new lands: Anglican, Puritans, Congregationalists, Mennonites, French Huguenots, Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, and others. In many Colonies differing religions were not tolerated within their borders.
