Encyclopedia > John Wentworth (governor)

John Wentworth (1737-1820) was the British colonial governor of New Hampshire at the time of the American Revolution. He followed his uncle, Benning Wentworth, as governor in 1767. During his term, he was instrumental in the creation of Dartmouth College. Although he was born in New Hampshire and was generally sympathetic to the colonists in their early disagreements with the crown, he remained loyal and was forced to leave in 1775. He later served as the royal governor of Nova Scotia from 1792 to 1808.

It is to be remembered that John Parr was named the full Governor of Nova Scotia in 1782; and, I might say at this point was to continue on as the governor until his death in 1791, at which time John Wentworth, finally, was named as the governor of Nova Scotia.
