In December of 1738, the Crown commissioned James Glen as the next governor of South Carolina.

He remained in office until June 1, 1756 when William Henry Lyttelton arrived to succeed him.

He served under Governor Robert Johnson twice, Governor James Moore, Governor Francis Nicholson, Acting Governor Arthur Middleton, Acting Governor Thomas Broughton, Acting Governor William Bull, Governor James Glen, and Governor William Henry Lyttleton.
John Cleland of Prince George's, Winyah Parish is known to have served on the Executive Council from 1740 to 1760. He served under Governor James Glen and Governor William Henry Lyttleton.
On December 15, 1749, the advisors of the Crown appointed William Bull, Jr. as a Member of His Majesty's Council, which was known locally as the Executive Council. He served on the Executive Council under Governor James Glen and Governor William Henry Lyttelton.
