The 17th century was an age of uncertainty and adventure, and the women in 17th century America who made the journey had to be buoyant, hard-working, and incredibly brave in order to survive. Some colonies, like Jamestown, were initially founded by men, which meant that Jamestown couldn’t grow as a colony until women arrived. Some women even began their lives in Colonial America as indentured servants, meaning they were provided free passage to the colonies in exchange for several years of work in the fields or elsewhere. Land was easily available in Colonial America. This is the end, Thank you.
