Andros was born in London on December 6, 1637, son of Amice Andros, an adherent of Charles I, and the royal bailiff of the island of Guernsey. He served for a short time in the army of Prince Henry of Nassau, and in 1660-1662 was gentleman in ordinary to the queen of Bohemia, Elizabeth Stuart, daughter of James I of England. He then served against the Dutch, and in 1672 was commissioned major in what is said to have been the first English regiment armed with the bayonet.

In 1674 he became, by the appointment of the Duke of York (who later became James II), governor of New York and the Jerseys, though his jurisdiction over the Jerseys was disputed, and until his recall in 1681 to meet an unfounded charge of dishonesty and favouritism in the collection of the revenues, he proved himself to be a capable administrator. His imperious disposition, however, rendered him quite unpopular among the colonists. Anthony Brockholls was acting Governor from 1681 to 1683 until Thomas Dongan arrived in America. Dongan remained at the post until 1688 when Andros returned to the post and remained until 1689. As Andros was Governor of the Dominion of New England, day to day activities in New York were assigned to Lieutenant Governor Francis Nicholson from 1688 to 1689.

During a visit to England in 1678 he was knighted. In 1686 he became governor, with Boston as his capital, of the Dominion of New England, into which Massachusetts (including Maine), Plymouth Colony, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire were consolidated, and in 1688 his jurisdiction was extended over New York and the Jerseys. Andros angered the Puritan colonists of Boston by openly affiliating with the Church of England. They were also angered by his noisy, "sinning" soldiers. But his vexatious interference with colonial rights and customs aroused the keenest resentment, and on April 18, 1689, soon after news of the arrival of William, Prince of Orange, in England reached Boston, the colonists deposed and arrested him. In New York his deputy, Francis Nicholson, was soon afterwards deposed by Jacob Leisler; and the inter-colonial union was dissolved.

Edmund Andros (1459 words)
Andros' reign in New England was that of a despot.
While Andros was at the height of his power a copy of the declaration of the Prince of Orange to the English people reached the colony.
Andros arrested the messenger that brought it, but he could not arrest the wild shout of joy that rang from one settlement to another, from the ocean shore to the river valley.
