(p.277) Chapter 18 The End of the New Haven Colony
Building a New Jerusalem

Francis J. Bremer

Yale University Press

This chapter outlines the end of the New Haven Colony. The New Haven committee which had been entrusted to deal with Connecticut responded quickly, claiming that they could not discuss the matter because they had appealed to the king and would not dishonor him or prejudice their own position by discussing things in the meanwhile. They also asserted that in any case they could not dissolve their colony without the “express consent of the other colonies” with whom they were united. New Haven's negotiators wanted assurance that they would be able to maintain the church membership requirement for the franchise, but Connecticut would not budge from its traditional policy of not requiring any such requirement.
