While John Gibbs and Philip Ludwell were in England, Thomas
Jarvis, a member of the previous Executive Council was elected
as President and Acting Deputy Governor of "Ye Lands North
and East of Cape Fear." Upon Ludwell's return being confirmed
as the Governor of all Carolina in 1691, Jarvis was officially
appointed as Deputy Governor under Ludwell.
There are no extant records of the Executive
Council nor the General Assembly under the tenure of President
and Deputy Governor Thomas Jarvis from 1690-1694.
