[Edward Cranfield was governor of the Province of New Hampshire 1682 – 1685, a tenure marked by hostility between Cranfield and the settlers. Edward Gove was tried for high treason.]

 

Governor Cranfield to Lords of Trade and Plantations. In my last I reported to you the rise of such an ill spirit among the Assembly that I had no hope of persuading them to pass any laws which would be satisfactory to you.[…]  Postscript.-27thJanuary. Since writing the above I have to report one of the late Assembly men for Hampton, Edward Gove, has made it his business to stir up the people in the several towns to rebellion. He gave out that he had a sword by his side and would not lay it down till he had the Government in his hands. […]  If it be their design to cause a disturbance over the enforcement of the King's orders, it will be impossible to govern them without a frigate. […]  30th January. I must add the further news that Gove was apprehended on 23rd instant, with some of his accomplices. He was at the head of a party of horse with a trumpet sounding before him, and if he had not been timely prevented he would have been joined by many.
