Politically, remember that Maryland and Georgia were Single Proprietorships, and that the Royal colonies of the Carolinas and Virginia were profit/cash crop and slave based. New England was for religious outcasts, such as the Puritans in Massachusetts, Quakers in Pennsylvania, and everyone in Rhode Island.
The major idea is that the Chesapeake was populated by people who came as individuals (many as indentured servants) looking to make money. This led to plantation agriculture.
In the Mid-Atlantic and New England you had more of families coming all as a group. They wanted small farms and such. This led these areas to have a more diversified economy and a more stable and pleasant society.
