Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division [LC-USZ62-96910]) new king, many people in Rhode Island were worried. John Clarke, who had remained in London to serve as the colony’s representative, went to work to try and secure Rhode Island’s future. He was finally successful when, in July 1663, Charles II issued a new charter for the colony. It was the most liberal charter received by any English colony and ensured the religious and political freedom of the colony. The document so accurately fulfilled the wishes of the people of the colony that it remained the law of the land until it was replaced by a state constitution in 1843.

When Governor Winthrop had heard from the sagamores and the representatives of Pawtuxet, he called for Miantonomi and Gorton to appear in Boston. Miantonomi answered the governor’s call and felt insulted by the treatment he received in Boston. Gorton had already been mistreated by the narrow-minded leaders of Boston, and he had no intention of going back. Winthrop had other ideas and sent 40 soldiers to Shawomet to get Gorton and his followers. 32 Rhode Island Some of the people in Shawomet barricaded themselves in a house and fired upon the soldiers.

They did not believe in heaven or hell, nor did they accept the political authority of the colony’s community. After creating a number of problems in Portsmouth, Gorton was forced to move on once again. This time, he went to Providence, probably assuming that the famously tolerant Roger Williams would leave him and his followers alone. After Gorton angered the local leaders, he moved to Pawtuxet, which was still part of Providence but would later become Cranston. The people in Pawtuxet did not want Gorton and his people in their community either.
