Weatherby Swann, the Governor of Port Royal

"Mr. Swann..."
Governor Swann, still. Do you think I wear this wig to keep my head warm?"
Carruthers and Weatherby Swann[src]

Governor, or governour, was the title given to a governing official, usually the executive (at least nominally, to different degrees also politically and administratively) of a non-sovereign level of government, ranking under the head of state; furthermore the title applied to officials with a similar mandate as representatives of a chartered company which had been granted exercise of autonomy, even with its own armed forces, in a colonial area.

England appointed governors to its colonies in the Caribbean, including Port Royal, which was at one time governed by Weatherby Swann before Lord Cutler Beckett assumed control. Other colonies, French, Spanish and Dutch, were also ruled by governors.
