To the author, the "Real Founders of New England" were those who arrived before the landing of Endicott in 1628, as agent of the Massachusetts Bay Company. Bolton attempts here to write the history and provide a full list of everyone known to have visited or lived in New England before that event.  

Bolton has separate historical chapters on the early explorers, the semi-permanent fishing colonies in the northern parts of New England, and the small settlements made around Massachusetts Bay.

He then compiled an alphabetical list of all the settlers at these various locations, with some biographical information on each. The passengers on the Mayflower and the other early vessels bringing passengers to Plymouth are also included in this compilation. A second listing gives a brief chronology for each of the early settlements, and includes the names of the settlers known to have been at each of these plantations.

Note: This book is also among the 22 volumes in our popular Compendium of New England Pioneers, which is available at 66% OFF the regular retail price of the individual books if purchased separately.
Bolton's principal motivation was his antipathy toward the Puritans and his strong devotion to the Church of England. This may be seen, for example, in one of his chapter titles: "The Break-up of the Church of England Colony in the Bay."
