Coming Over by David Cressy
Book DescriptionComing Over discusses the English migration to New England in the seventeenth century and shows the importance of English connections in the lives of American colonists. David Cressy reviews the information available to prospective migrants, the decisions they had to reach and the actions necessary before they could settle in America. English men and women moved to New England with a variety of motives, and in a multitude of circumstances. 'Puritanism', involving religious harassment in England and the desire to follow God's ordinances in America, was only one of many factors impelling people to move. Rather than developing in wilderness isolation, the society and culture of seventeenth-century New England were constantly shaped by their English roots. A two-way flow of correspondence, messages and information linked colonists to their homeland. Family duties, political sympathies, friendships, business and legal obligations all led to a continuing attachment across the Atlantic. In treating early America from a British perspective, as a part of English history, Professor Cressy provides us with many insights into the seventeenth century.

Books By Author David Cressy
Charles I and the People of England, Hardback (April 2015)
The story of the reign of Charles I - through the lives of his people. Prize-winning historian David Cressy re-creates the broadest possible panorama of early Stuart England, as it slipped from complacency to revolution
Saltpeter, Hardback (January 2013)
The story of the science, the technology, the politics and the military applications of saltpeter - the vital but mysterious substance that governments from the Tudors to the Victorians regarded as an 'inestimable treasure'.
Dangerous Talk, Paperback (January 2012)
Traces free speech across five centuries of popular political culture, and shows how scandalous, seditious and treasonable talk finally gained protection as 'the birthright of an Englishman'.
England on Edge, Paperback (October 2007)» View all books by David Cressy
England on Edge traces the collapse of the government of Charles I, the disintegration of the established church, and the cultural panic that led to civil war. Focused on the years 1640-1642, the book features hundreds of people not normally seen in historical surveys, appearing in a drama much larger than the struggle of king and parliament.
