In the case of New England and the Middle colonies, where direct trade between the colonies and Britain was at a minimum, it was necessary for the colonies to have recourse to a roundabout trade to procure the necessary bills of exchange and specie to pay their adverse balances with Britain.
The par of exchange in Virginia was reckoned in the colony at 125.

By the 1606 charter the colony was limited to 100 miles along the seaboard and 100 miles west from the coast.
It was in that year that the New Haven colony was founded; that the league of The United Colonies of New England was formed; and that Roger Williams obtained the first charter of Rhode Island.
As the colonies were growing in population, and as the charters of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Virginia, and Carolina gave them great stretches of territory in the Mississippi valley, it was inevitable that, sooner or later, a bitter contest for possession of the country should take place between the French and the English in America.

 A Short History of American Capitalism: COLONIAL ECONOMY
Of all members of that colony's governor's council during 1702-1776, "sixty percent were landed proprietors or their relatives, the individuals who had dominated the colony's history since the 1670s and who still controlled access to all unpatented land in the province."13 Large landholders, professionals, and large planters provided the bulk of members of the assembly.
By 1774 "land in the colonies was virtually all privately owned."20 Over half the value of colonial physical wealth was accounted for by land.
By the close of the colonial period, the land of the 13 colonies was spoken for by the politically dominant aristocracy.

 Historical Biographies, Nova Scotia: John Winslow (1703-74).
The governors were to meet early in the spring of 1755, so, through the winter, Winslow was charged by Shirley to form an army of New Englanders, to get them outfitted and drilled, and ready for service.
With the early fall of Fort Beauséjour in June of 1755 (the taking of Fort Beauséjour was the only English military objective, of the four, met that year) there was, thereafter, to be an excess of English troops at the isthmus.
Lord Loudoun, over the vigorous objections of both Governor Shirley and Colonel Winslow, wanted to mix the militia, or the "provincials," in with the regulars; and, of course, the works under regular army officers.

 Fiske, Dutch and Quaker Colonies in America. Ch. XVI
By 1693 all power of law-making was absorbed by the assembly, while the council became a mere board of advisers to the governor; and thenceforth for a hundred years the government of Pennsylvania was practically unicameral.
Soon after the middle of the century, Philadelphia, with a population of 30,000, was the largest city of the English colonies; Lancaster, with 10,000, was the largest inland town; York was nearly as large; while Wilmington and Newcastle, in Delaware, were thriving places.
The Quaker spirit in dealing with pauperism and crime was equally admirable, although with regard to capital punishment it proved impossible to realize the ideal of Penn and confine the death penalty to cases of murder and treason.

With assistance from the northern colonies, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and an army of civilians, led by William Pepperrell, aided by the British, fleet, the impossible was accomplished.
Governor Shirley now turned to plans for the invasion of Canada by a colonial militia, but the British military were not about to allow such an independent venture for their colonial subjects.
