Governor Sir John Leverett1

M, b. 1616, d. 16 March 1678/79
     Governor Sir John Leverett. Governor of Massachusetts 1673-79.2 He was born in 1616 in Boston, England.3 He was the son of Thomas Leverett and Anne Fitche.3 Governor Sir John Leverett was baptised on 7 July 1616 at Boston, Lincolnshire. Leverett migrated to Massachusetts, with his parents, in 1633 on the Griffin. He engaged in foreign trade and had a distinguished military and public career on both sides of the Atlantic. He joined the Ancient and Honourable Artillery Company in 1639 and continued as a member of it for 32 years. He became a freeman of Boston in 1640. Four years later he went to England, where he received a command in the Parliamentary army and gained distinction in the war. He returned to Boston, Mass., by 1648. In 1651 he was elected to the General Court and became one of the selectmen of the town of Boston. By 1653-54 the apprehensions felt in Massachusetts respecting Dutch, Indian, and French neighbours had resulted in plans for an expedition against the Dutch in Manhattan. Cromwell sent out three or four ships, and the General Court of Massachusetts took steps to enlist 500 volunteers, to be commanded by Major Robert Sedgwick and his son-in-law Capt. John Leverett. Before the expedition was ready, peace was signed with the Dutch, and it was decided to turn it against the French in Acadia. Sedgwick captured the forts at Saint John, Port-Royal (now Annapolis Royal, N.S.), and Penobscot, the last capitulating on 2 Sept. 1654; and designated Leverett as commander of these forts. Leverett was not with Sedgwick's expedition, as we know from his letter dated at Boston on 8 Sept. 1654 (Rawlinson MSS A18, f.58).

Although the documentary evidence is inconclusive, it is to be presumed that Leverett went to Acadia, for he was addressed by Cromwell in a letter of 3 April 1655 as "Commander of the Forts lately taken from the French" and was urged to use "your utmost care and circumspection, as well to defend and keep the forts above said." He continued to be regarded as commander until the forts were delivered up to Col. Thomas Temple on 1 May 1657, although Leverett had been appointed a colonial agent in England on 13 Nov. 1655. Several of Leverett's petitions for compensation for his expenses as commander in Acadia were among the many faces the Council of State during these troubled years and after the Restoration Leverett was still petitioning for his losses.

On his return to Massachusetts, Leverett was again elected to the General Court for 1663-65. He was major-general of all Massachusetts forces from 1663 to 1673. From 1665 to 1670 he was a member of the council and from 1671 to 1673 he was deputy governor of Massachusetts. He was elected governor of that colony in 1673 and was re-elected annually until his death.2 He firstly married Hannah Hudson, daughter of Ralph Hudson and Mary Thwing, on 18 June 1639? At Boston.1,4 Governor Sir John Leverett married secondly Sarah Sedgwick, daughter of Robert Sedgwick, in 1647.3 Governor Sir John Leverett died on 16 March 1678/79 in Boston, Massachusetts.5
