Carolina Under the Lords Proprietors' Rule

15th House of Burgesses - 1706-1708

Sometime before July 13, 1706, William Glover was elected as President of the Executive Council and he took the reins of the North Carolina government after Deputy Governor Thomas Cary was removed by the Lords Proprietors. Thomas Cary seemed to accept his fate for a while, but by 1708, he reasserted that he should be the head of the governement and for two years there were competing leaders very active in attempting to govern.

While there are quite a few records of President William Glover's Executive Council, there are no extant records of any General Assemblies that met during his tenure as the singular head of North Carolina's government from 1706-1708.
