New England Company

The Religious Archives Group will begin posting regular items on our website, whether they are news items or general interest. Further to the posting I made on the Religious Archives list serve in the summer, I will post our first item on our website about the New England Company.

The New England Company was founded in 1649, becoming the first English Protestant missionary society. Originally called the ‘Society for the propagation of the gospel in New England and the parts adjacent in America’, its initial aim was to convert Native Americans to Christianity through the work of missionaries.
