The Massachusetts Bay Colony took over the Dorchester Company’s failed planter settlements, such as Gloucester, as well as some of the Plymouth Company’s failed settlements, such as Hull and Weymouth, in the 1630s and 40s. In the 1630s, droves of Puritans soon began to flock to New England, particularly after 1633, when King Charles appointed William Laud as the new Archbishop of Canterbury and he began rooting out nonconformity in the church. Many of the migrants from the area were Puritans, who feared religious oppression in England, and wished to join Puritan leader John Winthrop in building a ‘holy city upon the hill’ in the New World. Similar Puritan congregations existed in the Home Counties and the West Country. As the migration got underway, migrants frequently recruited other family members as well as friends to join them, creating a chain of migration across the Atlantic.

They did not want to separate from the Anglican Church like the Pilgrims. They wanted to purify the church. In 1629, the Massachusetts Bay Company obtained a charter allowing it to trade and colonize in New England. The towns of Massachusetts Bay Colony thrived. Building their own vessels and sailing them to ports all over the world, the shipmasters laid the foundation for a trade that was to grow steadily. By the end of the colonial period, one third of all vessels under the British flag were built in New England. Colony merchants and shippers discovered that rum and slaves were profitable commodities.

The second, larger Puritan colony of Massachusetts Bay was conceived as a "city upon a hill. A much larger group of English Puritans left England in the 1630s, establishing the Massachusetts Bay Colony, the New Haven Colony, the Connecticut Colony, and Rhode Island. Unlike the exodus of young men to the Chesapeake colonies, these migrants were families with young children and their university-trained ministers.

The Puritans who settled the Massachusetts Bay Colony intended to set up a society that would accord with what they believed to be God’s wishes. Only those who could testify to a work of grace in their lives were permitted to choose the governor and the members of the lawmaking council, and those whose religious beliefs did not conform to the Puritans' were expelled. The self-governing, self-reliant colony was first governed by John Winthrop and organized under principles laid out by John Cotton. By moving the Massachusetts Bay Company’s General Court from England to America, the Puritans converted it from an instrument of the company to a legislative and administrative assembly free from royal oversight. The General Court was made into a bicameral assembly in 1644.
