1662: Colony of Connecticut was established.
Connecticut Colony, known as the River
Colony, was organized on March 3, 1636, as a place for Puritan nobleman. Early
on, the English settlers under John Winthrop Jr. struggled with the Dutch for
possession of the land, but the English eventually gained control of the colony
and set up a permanent settlement there. After the era of the Commonwealth under
Oliver Cromwell had passed, Charles II took the throne. John Winthrop Jr., the
governor of the Connecticut Colony went to England to secure a charter for the
colony. Charles II granted his request in 1662. The charter of the colony
covered both the Connecticut Colony and the New Haven Colony and they were
permitted to choose their own assembly, their own governor, and rule themselves
with minimal interference. New Haven was reluctant to give up their independence
and deliberated for some time before coming to a decision to merge with the
Connecticut Colony. Once merged the colony was called the Colony of Connecticut.
