When was Boston made a city?

    The first English settler arrived in Boston, which was then called Shawmut by the locals, in 1629. One year later, numerous other English settlers arrived in Salem, but did not want to stay there. Instead they traveled to Shawmut, where the first English settler was living. Then, deciding it should become a permanent residence, they renamed it Boston after a town in Lincolnshire, England.
