This chapter examines the cultural Diaspora of English republican ideas in colonial America during the seventeenth century. It provides a historical survey which highlights the influence English republican writing on the political thought of colonial America during his period and describes the nascent republicanism that the original settlers in New England brought with them. It considers the works of John Winthrop and John Cotton and suggests that English republican ideas were embedded in the writing and actions of English immigrants to Massachusetts from the outset.
