Category: Founders and Settlers of Rhode Island

Categories: New England History | Rhode Island History

This category contains profiles of Founders and Settlers of Rhode Island.

Rhode Island was founded in 1636 by the independent preacher, Roger Williams. He was soon followed by others who sought religious freedom. Many of those involved in the Antinomian Controversy, led by Anne Marbury Hutchinson, and who signed the Portsmouth Compact are also founders of the towns in which they resided.

Persons in this category will be from initial settlement by European colonials (1636) through 1700.
