Gov. Simon Bradstreet

b. 18 March 1603, d. 27 March 1697
     Gov. Simon Bradstreet was born on 18 March 1603 at Horbling, Lincolnshire, England. He married Anne Dudley, daughter of Gov. Thomas Dudley and Dorothy York, circa 1628 at Northamptonshire, England. Gov. Simon Bradstreet died on 27 March 1697 at Salem, Essex Co., MA, at age 94.

Simon, a colonial statesman and governor of Massachusetts, was born in Horbling, Lincolnshire, England, and was baptized on 18 March 1604, the son of Simon Bradstreet, vicar of Horbling, and Margaret (maiden name unknown). In 1617 he entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge (of which his father had been a fellow), and received the degrees of B.A. in 1620 and M.A. in 1624. Between 1621 and 1624 he served as assistant to Thomas Dudley, steward to the earl of Lincoln, and then became steward to the dowager countess of Warwick. These connections led to his first marriage, probably in 1628, to Dudley's eldest daughter, Anne, soon to win renown as the poet Anne Bradstreet, and to association with the company of Puritan gentry planning to immigrate to New England. On 18 March 1630, at a meeting in Southampton, Bradstreet was elected an assistant in the newly chartered Massachusetts Bay Company and assumed duties as its secretary. Two weeks later he sailed for America with his wife and the Dudley family in the fleet led by Governor John Winthrop (1588-1649).

In Massachusetts, where the company transformed itself into a colony, Bradstreet settled in Cambridge and continued his administrative tasks. He served as colony secretary until 1636 and, except during the period of direct royal government between 1686 and 1689, continued to be annually reelected to the magistracy (first as assistant, then in 1678 as deputy governor, and, from 1679, as governor) until his retirement in 1692, the longest recorded service of any colonial New England official. Throughout, he sat on numerous General Court committees. He was especially active in the negotiations that in 1643 created the New England Confederation, an alliance between the colonies of Massachusetts, Plymouth, Connecticut, and New Haven. He served as commissioner or alternate from Massachusetts to the confederation for twenty-four of the next thirty-four years.

In political affairs, Bradstreet consistently positioned himself as a moderate anxious to play down authoritarian tendencies in government and conflicts with the outside world. He sided with the Massachusetts deputies against a majority of his fellow magistrates in a prolonged debate over the degree of discretionary authority to be accorded the magistrates in the day-to-day business of government, and he strove to moderate the punishments inflicted on Robert Child when Child tried to appeal beyond Massachusetts to the English Parliament in 1646 for greater civil liberties and a Presbyterian system of church organization within the colony. Bradstreet joined other Essex County magistrates in 1643 in protesting Winthrop's policy of intervening in a dispute over who was the legitimate ruler of French Acadia (Nova Scotia). In 1661, after the restoration of the English monarchy, he was chosen, with Boston minister John Norton (1606-1663), to travel to London in an effort to allay the Crown's reputed hostility to Puritan Massachusetts. Arriving in England the following spring, the two emissaries quickly secured a royal letter confirming the Massachusetts charter and pardoning past offenses. Upon their return in 1663, however, they found that the letter's other provisions, commanding greater religious toleration and a suffrage no longer restricted to church members, only confirmed suspicions among colonists opposed to the mission that Bradstreet had been too passive in presenting their case for virtual autonomy from the Crown.

These fears did not prevent Bradstreet's election as governor in 1679, as England was again pressing Massachusetts for greater conformity to royal authority. But they produced sharp political divisions during his term of office. Some denounced him by 1684 as so accommodating to visiting royal officials as to be an enemy to his own colony. Others, such as his allies Joseph Dudley and William Stoughton, pressed him to bend still further to London's demands. Once more, Bradstreet steered a middle course. He bowed to the Crown's eventual nullification of the Massachusetts charter but refused to accept office in the royally governed Dominion of New England, imposed in place of charter rule in 1686, on the ground that its authoritarian structure abridged the colonists' liberties. When, on 18 April 1689, the dominion and its governor, Sir Edmund Andros, were overthrown by an armed uprising in Boston, the aged Bradstreet was brought out of retirement to serve as president of a council of safety and then, after June, as governor in a restored charter administration, a post he held despite increasing physical weakness until the arrival of a new royal governor, Sir William Phips, in May 1692. From February 1690 until 1692 his governorship also extended over the neighboring province of New Hampshire.

Bradstreet's long political service won him respect and renown as "the Nestor of New England." Jasper Danckaerts, a Dutch visitor to Boston in 1680, found that the "quiet and grave" governor "dwelt in only a common house, and that not the most costly.. . . He was dressed in black silk, but not sumptuously." Joshua Scottow, in "A Narrative of the Planting of the Massachusets Colony" (1694), hailed Bradstreet as "the only surviving Antiquary of us Nov-Angles, the Prime Secretary and Register of our civil and sacred Records, and the Bifronted Janus who saw the Closure of the Old and the Overture of this New-Albion World." Anne Bradstreet's verse provides a more intimate portrait: "If ever two were one, then surely we," she began the lines addressed "To My Dear and Loving Husband" (1678). Together, they raised four sons and four daughters, "eight birds hatcht in one nest," all of whom married into the colony's most prominent families. From Cambridge, the Bradstreets moved to Ipswich in 1635 and, by 1646, to the frontier settlement of Andover (what is now North Andover). After Anne's death in 1672, Bradstreet lived in Boston. In 1676 he married Anne Downing Gardner, thirty years his junior and a niece of former governor John Winthrop. The marriage was childless, and the couple passed their final years at Salem, where Bradstreet died.

Bradstreet never ranked among the wealthier men of the colony, and he took no lasting interest in mercantile affairs. But with the frequent grants of land given him for his public service he became a leading property developer and absentee proprietor, owning lands that fell within the boundaries of the towns of Hadley, Topsfield, Andover, Salisbury, and Lynn, together with large tracts in Maine. After 1660 he was an active member of the Atherton Company, a powerful group of speculators seeking to develop the Narragansett territories between Rhode Island and Connecticut. His 1689 will disposed of over fifteen hundred acres of land in Massachusetts alone.

Bradstreet's life spanned and exemplified many of the themes of the Puritan colonists' transition from old to New England--from primitive settlement to royal province and from the migration of individual families to the creation of a complex social order. Less ardently religious--to judge by his writings--than many of his fellow leaders, Bradstreet was nonetheless a firm opponent of groups such as the Quakers whom he perceived as threatening New England's domestic peace and purity. In the face of external authority, by contrast, he preferred diplomacy to confrontation. Bradstreet inspired unusual respect and affection among his contemporaries, and his life is powerful testimony to the vitality and cohesion of the political community they created. 1
