Demographic history of the United States

This article is about the demographic history of the United States. 1610–1780 population data. The census numbers do not include Native Americans until 1860. From 1890 to 2010, the median age at first marriage was as follows: Nearly all non Native American commercial activity was run in small owned businesses with good credit both at home and in England being essential since they were cash poor. Most settlements were nearly independent of trade with Britain as most grew or made nearly everything they needed—the average cost of imports per most households was only about 5-15 English pounds per year. Most settlements were created by complete family groups with several generations present in each settlement. Close to 80% of the families owned the land they lived and farmed on, they nearly all used English Common Law as their basic code of law and, except for the French and Germans, spoke some dialect of English. They established their own popularly elected governments and courts and were, within a few years self-governing, self-supporting and self-replicating.

Nearly all colonies and states in the United States were settled by migration from another colony or state, as foreign immigration only played a minor role after the first initial settlements were The New England colonists included more educated men as well as many skilled farmers and craftsmen. They were farmers and settled in small villages for common religious activity. Shipbuilding and fisheries were important in coastal towns. New England's healthy climate, abundant food supply resulted in the lowest death rate and highest birth rate of any place in the world; the eastern and northern frontier around the initial New England settlements was settled by the Yankee descendants of the original New Englanders. Emigration to the New England colonies after 1640 and the start of the English Civil War decreased to less than 1% in nearly all years prior to 1845; the rapid growth of the New England colonies was entirely due to the high birth rate and low death rate per year. The middle colonies' settlements were scattered west of New York City, New York and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Dutch-started colony of New York had the most eclectic collection of residents from many different nations and prospered as a major trading and commercial center after about 1700. The Pennsylvania colonial center was dominated by the Quakers for decades after they emigrated there from the North Midlands of England, from about 1680 to 1725; the main commercial center of Philadelphia was run by prosperous Quakers, supplemented by many small farming and trading communities with strong German contingents located in the Delaware River valley. Many more settlers arrived in the middle colonies starting in about 1680, when Pennsylvania was founded and many Protestant sects were encouraged to settle there for freedom of religion and good, cheap land; these settlers were of 33 % English extraction. By 1780 in New York about 27% of the population were descendants of Dutch settlers 55,000 of 204,000. New Jersey had the rest of the Dutch where they were 14% of the population of 140,000; the rest were English with a wide mixture of other Europeans and about 6% Blacks.

New Jersey and Delaware had a majority of British with 20% German-descended colonists, about a 6% black population, a small contingent of Swedish descendants of New Sweden. Nearly all were at least third-generation natives; the main drive of the economy in Virginia and South Carolina was large plantations growing staples for export tobacco and rice. Outside the plantations, land was farmed by independent farmers who rented from the proprietors, or owned it outright, they emphasized subsistence farming to grow food for their large families. Many of the Irish and Irish immigrants specialized in rye-whiskey making, which they sold to obtain cash. In Maryland, by 1700 there were about 25,000 people and by 1750 that had grown more than 5 times to 130,000. By 1755, about 40% of Maryland's population was black. From 1717 to 1775 the western frontier was settled by Presbyterian settlers who migrated in large part from Scotland and Ireland. Frontier settlers landed in Philadelphia or Baltimore before migrating to the western frontier for the cheaper land.

All the colonies, after they were started, grew by natural growth, with foreign born populations exceeding 10% in isolated instances. The last significant colonies to be settled by immigrants were Pennsylvania in the early 18th century and Georgia and the Borderlands in the late 18th century, as migration continued to provide nearly all the settlers for each new colony or state; this pattern would continue throughout U. S. history. The extent of colonial settlements by 1800 is shown by this map from the University of Texas map collection. According to one source the following were the countries of origin for new arrivals coming to the United States before 1790; the regions marked. The ancestry of the 3.9 million population in 1790 has been estimated by various sources by sampling last names in the 1790 census and assigning them a country of origin. The Irish in the 1790 census were Scots Irish; the French were Huguenots. The total U. S. Catholic population in 1790 is estimated at 40,000 or 1.6% a low count due to prejudice.

The Goblins

The Goblins is a Caroline-era stage play, a comedy written by Sir John Suckling. It was premiered on the stage in 1638 and first published in 1646; the play was licensed for performance by Sir Henry Herbert, the Master of the Revels, on 17 November 1638 and performed at Court three days on 20 November, by the King's Men, who acted the work at the Blackfriars Theatre. It was entered into the Stationers' Register on 24 July 1646 and published in quarto that year by the bookseller Humphrey Moseley; the Goblins was a significant element in the so-called "Second War of the Theatres" of the 1630s. Like the original Poetomachia or War of the Theatres of three decades earlier, the Second War of the Theatres involved Ben Jonson on one side and a set of rivals on the other. In the Second case, Ben Jonson and his supporters, notably Richard Brome, represented professional playwrights arrayed against the courtly amateurs like Suckling. Suckling's ridicule of the deceased Jonson in The Goblins provoked Brome to ridicule Suckling in his The Court Beggar.

In the mythical kingdom of Francelia, a band of robbers, led by their chieftain Tamoren, masquerade as devils and have the land in an uproar with their pranks. They mete out a kind of rough justice, much in the tradition of Robin Hood; as is true of many other plays of the Caroline era everything in The Goblins seems to have some precedent in other, earlier plays of English Renaissance theatre. The rivalry of two noble families suggests Romeo and Juliet, for example; the play, rich in action and dances shows the influence of The Tempest. During the Restoration era, The Goblins was revived at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in January 1667. Samuel Pepys saw the King's Company production on 22 May 1667. A century Richard Brinsley Sheridan adapted material from The Goblins, including the song "Here's to the nut-brown lass." Gurr, Andrew. The Shakespeare Company, 1594–1642.
