The following off-site maps show the various claims of the original Thirteen Colonies: , , , and . If this information could be included in a map of this province's claims, it would be great.

Province or Colony? what is the "subject" of this article?
The subject of the lead sentence does not match the title of this article. Which should it be? Weren't such territories of British NA called "colonies" rather than "provinces"? Hult041956 20:02, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
They both refer to the same thing, the difference being whether to use the formal or informal name, most of the colonies took on a formal Province of X name at the point that they became Crown Colonies, in New Hampshire's case in 1691 as described in the article.

Thanks Kmusser. I stumbled on the article at random and was a little confused. Best regards, Hult041956 (talk) 17:07, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
Massachusetts Colony or Massachusetts Bay Colony?
It would be best if titles were consistant. I assume the later is more official. Also, what towns are meant in the phrase "These towns agreed to unite in 1639 and in 1641 agreed to join the Massachusetts Colony."? Don't you mean the entire Colony? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:32, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
There was no formal colony in 1641, it was just a collection of settlements. Magic♪piano 14:21, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
