The New England settlers were still breaking away and creating new colonies. The behavior of Massachusetts was an ache in the side of King Charles II and New Haven wasn’t much better. To bring them back in line he created a rivalry and so Connecticut was given a charter. Did it work? I think when times were tough they stuck together. Such as when the Quakers started making their way across the ocean. The Quakers stood their ground and Charles II backed them up. Religious tolerance was coming to America. And John Eliot was doing his best to teach the Indians the Puritan religion.
