    The second, larger Puritan colony of Massachusetts Bay was conceived as a "city upon a hill." But it also struggled with internal turmoil—like the Salem Witch Trials—and external conflict, like King Philip's (Metacom's) War. In the early 17th century, thousands of English Puritans settled in North America, mainly in New England. Many believed that the Church of England had been insufficiently reformed, retaining too much of its Roman Catholic doctrine, and wished to separate from the church. Called “separatists”, these Pilgrims established the Plymouth Colony.

    In their rigid enforcement of community standards, New England’s Puritan punishments often often included the bilbo, the cleft stick, the brand, the ear crop and the letter, scarlet and otherwise. In Massachusetts, New Plymouth, Connecticut and New Haven Colony, the Puritans cared more for moral behavior and clean living than for property rights. In England the best schools were the grarnmar schools which took a boy between the ages of six and eight and taught him Latin Grammar and literature and a little Greek until he was fit to enter Oxford or Cambridge at the age of 14 to These seeds were already sown in England before the Puritan .

      Puritanism first emerged in the 16th and 17th centuries in England as a movement to remove all vestiges of Catholicism from the Anglican Church. The Anglican Church first separated from Catholicism in , but when Queen Mary took the throne in , she reverted it to : Brette Sember.   But many scholars of 17th century New England say that the stern and sober caricature portrayed in fiction like “The Scarlet Letter” doesn’t do the real Puritans, or the Pilgrims, justice.
