What were the 3 major motivations of English colonization of the New World in the late 16th and early 17th centuries?
The 3 major motivations for English colonization of the New World were glory, God, and gold. Many adventurers who signed on with the first corporations, such as the Virginia Company of London, were seeking out adventure and wanted to make a name for themselves back home (glory). There was an intrinsic motivation of many English colonizers, as well as colonizers from other European nations, that believed that it was their "divine obligation" to convert the native population of the New World to their specific brand of Christianity (God). Perhaps the most intriguing and most often cited goal of English colonization of the New World was to become rich. Many sailors heard great stories of the vast shorelines lined with silver, or golden cities built by native peoples (Gold).
