Colonial population exploded  250,000 in 1700 to 2.5 million in 1770.  Why?

 1.  Immigration

 2.  Marriages were also a contributing factor to the population increase.  Greater # of women married at an earlier age

3.  10% of mothers and babies died in childbirth, 18th century Europe was much higher 50%

Disease and epidemics (diphtheria) spread quickly from cities to frontier.

Colonies did flourish, the family becoming a central factor.  Becoming isolated, independent, and largely self-sufficient.
