Royal Government and Imperial Crisis

Royal Government and Imperial Crisis

(p.195) Chapter Seven Royal Government and Imperial Crisis
Colonial Georgia and the Creeks

John T. Juricek

University Press of Florida

In April 1753, more than a year after the Georgia Trustees surrendered their royal charter, the colony drifted along on momentum, for it had no formally constituted government. The Board of Trade was ordered to prepare a plan for governing the orphaned colony. The Board followed the traditional pattern set for the royal colonies in America and authority was placed in the King's appointed governor, an appointed council, and an elective lower house of assembly. John Reynolds, a former naval officer and future admiral, was named the colony's first royal governor. His administration and the conflicts with the French for the control of North America with support from various Indian Nations are discussed in this chapter.
