Unfortunately, both group, Plymouth and Jamestown became to have settlers rebel and not agree to rules and began having ideas of rebellion. The idea of staying together and being controlled by the prominent ruler, whether it was John Smith or William Bradford was difficult. It was also difficult to maintain a sustainable resource of food growth and crops. The fall of resource began and the commoners began to become greedy for survival and took advantage of the unsustainable rate of food production leaving others to starve and die. Both towns eventually collapsed because of the cause of starvation and death.
Chesapeake is similar to Jamestown, in a few ways- both of them had many changes in political systems, grew tobacco as a cash crop, used slaves, and were Christian. They were also different, of course, as the political systems they each went through were not the same, Jamestown traded with
James town was the first settlement in North America and was developed mainly to supply to the mother country with new goods. Being the first settlement James Town had challenges they had to overcome versus Massachusetts which was a town started by a religious group known as Puritans who had no obligation to England other than coming to North America to practice their religion freely.
Throughout the 17th century, the English faced many hardships. The settlers of Jamestown had faced misfortune of the new land such as disease and malnutrition, and failure of crops. Over time the English built their economic and social structure with perfecting crops, indentured slaves and building
In both towns, these civilizations both had their ups and downs. But Jamestown was something else. Men were superior to women. Women were working with crops while the Men would run the town and make sure it was successful. Women would often work on corn, wheat, potatoes, etc. But most importantly, everyone was for themselves. People had to make sure that they were going to eat, where to sleep and what not. As a result of that, many got rich. Many were making money for themselves. However, once Smith left the colony, he never returned.
Their enemies didn't really want them on their land so Jamestown had to build a fort to protect themselves from getting killed.
While both settlements had early encounters with Native Americans, they demonstrated different levels of aggression. Early

In the early settling of the Americas, the main goal for an established colony was to make money for their country; however there were almost always underlying goals for the members of each colony.The earliest colony, Jamestown, stuck firmly to it’s goal of profit as even the church required a tax. Rules were also implemented to make sure members worked, those who didn’t work did not eat. The pilgrims we all know and love had other plans on their mind when they finally set out for the new world, originally they were sent to help collect profit but accidentally sailed north of Jamestown. In this new area they were free from the Anglican church and for the most part, became self sufficient. The Puritans had the most balanced approach to their goal when established they kept England happy but, had the goal of being a model for religious communities. They made money and were extremely strict with their religious beliefs, some were beaten for breaking the rules as this would bring god's wrath upon everyone. Others settled away from the puritans as they thought their rules were far too strict, such as the Quakers. All of these colonies can be seen to settle in three regions of the east coast, the colonies within the regions all having something in common. Each region is motivated by something different be it, religion, trade, or materials.
Jamestown and the Massachusetts Bay Colony had many similarities and differences. Many of these differences were due to their physical location and climatic conditions. The success of both colonies can be contributed to strong leadership and the characteristics of the personalities of the settlers that inhabited each settlement. Many of the early problems in both settlements can be contributed to a lack of knowledge on the parts of the settlers along with attacks from neighboring Native American tribes.
