1763, Josias Lyndon, Colonial Governor Of Rhode Island Signed Document For Sale
This item is a wonderful,original document dated 1763, a summons for three members of the Shearman family to appear at the General Assembly to hear a complaint by Enoch Lewis...signed by Josias Lyndon as clerk. Document is 5x8, biography tipped to lower part of document. Also is a signature cut of colonial Governor Richard Ward.
Josias Lyndon (March 10, 1704 – March 30, 1778) was a governor of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, serving for a single one-year term.
As the recorder of colonial affairs, he became familiar with virtually every piece of legislation and every official manuscript written over a period of nearly half a century. At the time of Lyndon's election to governor in 1768, there was a lot of bitter acrimony between one camp led by Samuel Ward and the other camp led by Stephen Hopkins, both of whom had already served multiple terms as governor. Lyndon was elected almost unanimously as a peace and compromise candidate.
When war with Britain came to the colonies and Newport was occupied, Lyndon found safety in Warren, Rhode Island where he died of smallpox in 1778.
Richard Ward (April 15, 1689 – August 21, 1763) was a governor of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, serving for one complete term from 1741 to 1742.Ward was the Secretary of State from 1730 to 1733, and in 1740 became the Deputy Governor of the colony. In this capacity he and Samuel Perry were appointed trustees to the Inidan sachem Ninigret. In 1741 he was selected as Governor for a single term.
