Why did the Virginia Company give settlers the right to self-government?

Answered by Doodle4Brainly

They were corporations (Virginia Company of London and Virginia Company of Plymouth) and they were employed by the Crown. The Crown gave them the right to self-govern and the Companies did the same for their settlers (colonies).
