In 1630 he emmigrated to New England (he and his family are listed in the Winthrop fleet), having been appointed deputy-governor of Massachusetts. He was appointed governor in 1634 and again in 1640, 1645 and 1650. When not serving as governor he was generally deputy-governor or assistant, holding the former office thirteen and the latter five years. In March, 1644, he was appointed sergeant major-general of the colony, and served as such for four years.

William Dudley1

M, b. 20 October 1686, d. 5 August 1743
     William Dudley. Military officer and legislator. He was born on 20 October 1686 in Roxbury, Massachusetts.1 He was the son of Governor Joseph Dudley and Rebecca Tyng.1 Dudley graduated from Harvard College in 1704 and made his first venture into public life in 1705, when he travelled with Samuel Vetch and others to Quebec to arrange with Governor Philippe de Rigaud de Vaudreuil an exchange of prisoners, particularly of those taken in the Deerfield massacre of 1704. Dudley had been sent by his father to gain experience and to prove himself worthy of his name. The mission lasted six months (two and a half months in Quebec), but only a few prisoners were brought back, one being the son of the Reverend John Williams of Deerfield. Following this mission, Governor Dudley was accused of countenancing illegal trade, and Vetch was convicted of trading with the enemy. The governor and his son, however, escaped from the controversy unscathed. In New France, Governor Vaudreuil received a mild reprimand from the colonial minister, Pontchartrain, because of the dangers of spying and illegal trade inherent in the mission. In 1710 Joseph Dudley wrote to the secretary of state, St John, that the mission had indeed been used for the purpose of spying.

William Dudley participated in Colonel John March's expedition to Port-Royal (Annapolis Royal, N.S.) in 1707. Appointed by his father as the expedition s secretary of war, Dudley wrote a penetrating description of the dissension in New England ranks, on this abortive campaign against Acadia. In 1710, holding a major s commission from his father, he served in William Tailer s regiment under Vetch and Francis Nicholson in the capture of Port-Royal. As lieutenant-colonel he accompanied Vetch on the ill-fated expedition of Sir Hovenden Walker against Quebec in August 1711. By 1713 he was a colonel in command of the 1st regiment in Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

With the end of Queen Anne's War, the northeastern Indians (Abenakis of the Penobscot, Saint John, and Kennebec rivers) sued for peace with New England, and signed articles of submission at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on 13 July 1713. This was the first of several such peace conferences in which Dudley participated as witness or commissioner. Others occurred in 1717, 1720, 1722, and after the Indian war of 1722-25 Sébastien Rale). Early in 1725 Lieutenant Governor William Dummer sent Dudley and Samuel Thaxter to Montreal to seek an end to French assistance to the Indians and to obtain a release of prisoners. The French denied giving the Indians military aid, but did grant the release of 26 individuals
.
Dudley held various public offices during his life. In 1713 he was appointed a justice of the peace, and was a sheriff about the same time. He served in the Massachusetts house of representatives from 1718 to 1729 and was speaker of the house (1724-29). From 1729 until his death he sat on the Massachusetts Council. In his legislative career Dudley, whom Shipton has called a "gentleman woodsman," proved useful to the colony because of his knowledge of the back country. He served on every important boundary commission dealing with Massachusetts disputes with her neighbours and on many committees concerned with military and Indian affairs. Dr William Douglass, a contemporary, commented that he was the most knowledgeable legislator on land value and other provincial matters. Fellow councillor Thomas Hutchinson wrote that he was "deservedly esteemed and constantly employed in the most important services of government."2 William Dudley married Elizabeth Davenport, daughter of Hon. Judge Addington Davenport and Elizabeth Wainwright, on 10 March 1720/21.1 William Dudley died on 5 August 1743 in Roxbury at the age of 56 survived by eight children. The Boston Weekly News Letter, 11 Aug. 1743, stated that his passing was much lamented and that he was buried with great honour and respect.1

Sir Hector Livingston Duff K.B.E., C.M.G.1

M, b. 10 January 1872, d. 10 February 1954
     Sir Hector Livingston Duff K.B.E., C.M.G. was born on 10 January 1872 in Abundabus, Bombay Presidency, India. He was an Colonial Administrator and author. His works include Nyasaland under the Foreign Office, Cotton Growing in Nigeria and This Small World of Mine. He was the son of Surgeon Major John Pope Duff and Alice Sewell.1 Sir Hector Livingston Duff K.B.E., C.M.G. was baptised on 2 February 1872 at Ahmedabad, Bombay.2 He died on 10 February 1954 in a nursing home, Bath, Somerset, at the age of 82


As a young man he wished to obtain an official post in Uganda where his friend Major Thruston held a senior military appointment. Major Thruston was killed by the mutineers in the revolt of the Sudanese troops in Uganda in 1898, and it was perhaps fortunate for Duff that the Foreign Office offered him in 1897 the post of an Assistant Resident in the British Central Africa Protectorate, as he might otherwise have shared his friend’s fate. He accepted the offer and proceeded direct from India, where he was travelling at the time, to the Protectorate.
With the appointment of Mr. (later Sir Alfred) Sharpe in 1897 as the new Commissioner the country may be said to have embarked upon the normal course of a settled British dependency with a future before it of steady, if not sensational progress. In this new era of development Duff and his colleagues in the provincial administration were called upon to play an important part. To them was entrusted the duty of maintaining peace among the natives by peaceful methods, of assisting them in the agricultural development of their lands, and so forth.
In 1903 Duff resigned but was re-appointed in the early part of the following year. In 1906 he was promoted to be Resident and in 1911 he was further promoted to a First Grade Residentship. From this time onwards he frequently acted as Deputy Governor. The control of the Protectorate had been transferred from the Foreign Office to the Colonial Office in 1904 and the post of Consul-General had been abolished. By an Order in Council which came into force in October, 1907, the Commissioner became a Governor and Commander-in-Chief and Executive and Legislative Councils were established. Also the old name of the “Nyasaland Protectorate” was revived.
