Re: In What Way Did English Colonies Developed Differently From Sapnish and French
I think it might have something to do with the percentage of British colonists who came here in order to be farmers, compared to that percentage of those so inclined from France and Spain. They "put down roots." These would have a sort of "emotional investment" in their new land that perhaps might be lacking among trappers and miners.
Plus, as you alluded to, some came for religious freedom. And some came for "regular" freedom (they were one step ahead of the constables). They too might have had an "emotional investment."
It's the difference between living on the land, and making a living from the land. Of course, the difference is marginal. But that's where everything happens - at the margin.
