Boston was named by Puritans in 1630 who had come from Boston, Lincolnshire, England, which is about 112 miles due north of London. In case you were sick that day, the Puritans stood in revolt to the Church of England, which stood in revolt to the Roman Catholic Church. As far as the Puritans were concerned, the Church of England was more like than apart from Catholicism. Another way to look at it, the Puritans were extremist Protestants that held to strictly religious views, much like Christian evangelism today. Eventually, after the 18th century, they were absorbed into the many sects of Protestantism in America. They emigrated to the Boston area, known early on as the Shawmut Peninsula, and were very influential with the early development of Boston society. It was no accident that the rebel spirit of the Puritans held sway over the hearts and minds of American Revolutionaries in the late 18th century. Perhaps you recall the Boston Tea Party, Boston Massacre and Battle of Bunker Hill? That Boston would be first to poke England’s King George III in the eye was probably no accident. That tussle was brewing for centuries and only needed a spark.
