Description:

Other Puritans, led by John Winthrop starting in 1630, the first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, change their Joint-Stock Corporation into a representative system with an assembly, governor, and council. However, only Puritan churchgoing males are given the right to vote or hold office. This system is considerably more representative than that of Virginia.
