If England had settled all its colonists in Plymouth or in Jamestown in the 1600's, would there have been a civil war in the 1860's?   Why wasn't...

The reason that there was more than just one settlement is that it wasn't exactly the British government colonizing North America.  By that, I mean that there wasn't a "Ministry of Colonizing" that sent out government-sponsored colonies.

Instead, the colonies were founded by people who were (for the most part) trying to get rich.  The Crown would give charters to individuals or companies allowing them to settle some particular area.  They would then try to get rich doing so.

Given that that's how they were conducting the colonization, you can see why they didn't do it all in one settlement.

As far as a Civil War goes, as soon as the South was settled in such a way as to make it more aristocratic and export-oriented (in other words, by the plantation system) and the North was settled by small farmers and artisans, the die was cast.  They were too different and were always going to have different interests.  It was those differences that led to the war.
