罗杰.威廉斯 (Roger Williams),罗德岛州 (Rhode Island)的创始人,1631年2月5日抵达波士顿

许多威廉斯的教区居民,不同意他完全脱离英国国教的作法,他前往沙连担任牧师。但在那里,他的想法也被认为太过激进;他前往普利茅斯,同样的不受欢迎。威廉斯认为,土地要取得所有权,向印第安人购买,要比完全使用武力来得好。他再次到达沙连,1635年,他的言论总算留下痕迹,但他却遭到驱逐。威廉斯便向纳拉干西族的印第安人买下罗德岛州,开始移民创建。


Many of Williams's parishioners did not agree with his idea to separate from the Church of England. He then became minister in Salem. There, his ideas also proved too radical. He went to Plymouth but again fell into disfavor. Williams insisted that land must be purchased from the Indians, rather than taken from them forcefully, in order to claim title to it. He again went to Salem and was eventually put on trial in 1635 for his views. His sentence was banishment. Williams then purchased land from the Narragansett Indians and established the settlement of Providence, Rhode Island.
