Families in the Colonies

 

Kitchen

Colonists married in their early twenties. The women in the colonies were out numbered by the men. If men or women were indentured servants, they had to finish their servitude before being allowed to marry. Families were large. Birth control of any kind was considered a sin. Children were expected to be productive members of the family from an early age. They would first have chores around the house and soon be working the farm.
