Charter Colonies

Charter Colonies These were colonies established by a royal patent granting them exclusive control over their own internal governance, free from involvement by the Crown. Va. was a charter colony until 1624, Mass. until 1684, and Ga. from 1732 to 1752. By 1776, only Conn. and R.I. retained charter status.
