Governor of Massachusetts.

One of the six original patentees of the Dorchester Company. This group of Puritan settlers bought land from the Plymouth Company, and settled it in 1628, two years before the arrival of John Winthrop's fleet. Endecott was chosen to lead the first expedition, and he settled with sixty other men in Naumkeag, which would soon become Salem, Massachusetts. The land had been previously settled by one Roger Conant, who had left Plymouth Colony two years before. Endecott served as governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony starting in 1629, just preceding John Winthrop. He was married to Elizabeth Gibson in 1630. He's featured in Nathaniel Hawthorne's story "Endicott and the Red Cross."
