  • Why did I come to the colonies?
  • I came to the Colonies in 1738 because it was a fresh start and and escape from the religious problems in England. Whaling was a big part of my choice to move to the colonies because and there was many new advances in Whaling as well.
  • I moved to New England because it was easy to get too from England, great whaling opportunities, and there was religious freedom. They had made newer ships to hold more whale and food so the trips could last longer as well as being able to travel farther out.
  • For a whaler, it was different depending on the time of the year. If it was the migration season, then we were on the water for 4 months at a time. But on land, it was maintaining the boat and trading or selling to merchants or traders.
  • What was life like before the colonies?
  • What happened on the journey?
  • On our journey, a few people died and food and water was a problem. Also on a day to day basis we either ate cooked r dried meat. On a day with calm winds and no rain, we could cook. But on other days, we were below deck not eating good food, most of the time infested with bugs.
  • Which colony did I move too and why?
  • Life in the colonies
  • In the colonies, I was either depending on were I was, maintaining the ship, or trading with England or merchants/traders. On the ship, we rarely actually are hunting, we are moving around the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Yes because I am making a lot more money, their are many more opportunities with whaling, I have many more freedoms. With that I also get a fresh start to live my life in a brand new environment.
  • Was it worth it to move to the colonies?
