The Puritans left England due to England's suffering economy, political crisis, where King Charles raised taxes, and the Church of England began to punish Puritans because they were dissenters. Dissenters were people who disagree with official opinions. These problems led to the Great Migration. The Puritans were granted a charter from King Charles in 1629 to settle in New England and formed the Massachusetts Bay Company.
In 1630, a fleet of ships carrying Puritan colonists left England for Massachusetts, seeking religious freedom.
