Simon Bradstreet matriculated at an English college, but did not finish his course, perhaps on account of his father's death. He came to America with Governor Winthrop in the "Arabella." He was one of the founders of Newtown, now Cambridge. For a while he resided probably at Salem, certainly at Ipswich, removing in 1648 to Andover, where he was one of the first settlers and the leading citizen. Among his important offices and functions were these: secretarty of colony from 1630-34; one of the commissioners of the united colonies in 1743. In 1653 he successfully opposed a projected war on the Dutch and Indians. He was a commissioner with regard to the boundary between New Amsterdam and New Haven in 1650, and the next year a commissioner concerning the jurisdiction of Massachusetts over York and Kittery, Maine. About 1662 he went to England to answer charges against the colony. He was deputy governor 1673-79; he was assistant fifty years. From 1679 he was governor of the colony until the dissolution of the chartyer in May, 1686. Although then almost ninety years old, he was active in resisting Andros; and when Andros was imprisoned he took charge of the government. The old charter was restored and he was governor of Massachusetts and New Hampshire until May, 1692. The general court, in consideration of his long and extraordinary service, voted 100 toward defraying the expenses of his interment. He was buried in the Charter burying ground at Salem. Governor Bradstreet married (second) Ann (Downing) Gardner, who married (first) Joseph Gardner. Children, all by first wife: Samuel, Dorothy, Sarah, Simon, Hannah, Mercy, Dudley, John. [ref 29:77]

18 Mar 1603 baptized, Horbling, Lincolnshire, 1630 immigrated; "Simon Brandstreete" admitted to Boston church as member #7, which would be in the fall of 1630. Assistant, Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630 to 1678; Secretary, 1630 to 1636; Governor, 1679 to 1686 and 1689 to 1692; Commissioner of the United Colonies, 1644, 1663 to 1667 [MA Civil List 17-18, 21-26, 28]. (Savage credits Bradstreet with service as Deputy Governor from 1673 to 1678, but Samuel Symonds held this office in those years, as Savage also notes.) Bradstreet held many other offices at the county and local level, such as Cambridge selectman and Essex magistrate. [ref 26]

Cambridge 1634, Ipswich 1636, Salem 1646, Andover 1652, Salem 1676, Boston by 1689, Salem 169; to England and return in 1662 on colony business. 25 May 1636 one of seven men admitted on that day who had been involved with the Massachusetts Bay Company for many years, and had held high offices; their admission to freemanship on this date was merely a formality that recognized a status that had existed for some time. The General Court granted "Mr. Symon Bradstreete" eight hundred acres to be located near the farms of Capt. Keane and others, 23 May 1650. Bradstreet and Thomas Wiggen, gent., were granted one thousand acres near Dover, with the privilege of timber for their sawmill, 14 October 1651. Mr. Bradstreet and Mr. Symonds were granted five hundred acres "in reference to service done at York and Kittery," 14 September 1653 to be laid out eight miles from the Haverhill meeting house. He was granted another five hundred acres, August 1653, near the Connecticut River next to his two hundred acres, 6 May 1657, but was encouraged to locate it elsewhere, 28 May 1659. As a result, he was granted an additional three hundred acres, to be six miles or more from the Northampton meeting house, 31 May 1660. His five hundred acres near Hadley was in controversy 18 May 1664. [ref 26]

John Eliot recorded on 10 July 1666 that "There happened a dreadful burning at Andover. Mr. Bradstreet's house & the greatest part of his goods were burnt. The occasion of which burning was the carelessness of the maid, who put hot ashes into an hogshead over the porch: the tub fired about 2 o'clock in the morning & set the chamber & house on fire." [ref 26]

In his will, dated 23 December 1689 (with codicil of 27 January 1692/3) and proved 2 April 1697, "Simon Bradstreet of Boston ... being at present in competent health and strength" set his house in order and "for my outward estate which God in his rich mercy hath blessed me withal in this Wilderness (having given all my eight children such portions as I thought meet and equal & divided my plate and household stuff amongst them)" the remainder was bequeathed to "my dear and loving wife Mrs. Ann Bradstreet all that estate real and personal whatsoever that I had of hers or with her in marriage ...

Simon Bradstreet (1604-1697)
Governor Massachusetts Bay Colony
1679-1686, 1689-1692

Simon Bradstreet was the final Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, which by 1686 had lost its charter. For over three generations the Massachusetts Bay Colony had inched increasingly further from English rule. Governors were frequently called to defend the Colony's charter to operate as a relatively independent company.

Bradstreet arrived in Boston with John Winthrop aboard the Arabella and over the next fifty years he served as an Assistant of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (a position comparable to today's Governor's Council), while representing Massachusetts in the New England Confederation for 33 years. Finally in 1679, he was elected Governor.

As English calls to revoke Massachusetts' charter grew, Governor Bradstreet took a conciliatory approach to England. Eventually all of New England's charters were revoked and together they were made in to the short-lived Dominion of New England. Bradstreet rejected offers to join the new government, which was maintained by Joseph Dudley until the arrival of the reviled Royal Governor, Sir Edmund Andros.

England's "Glorious Revolution" of 1688 disrupted Andros' rule, who was sent back to England in chains. The eighty-four year old Bradstreet found himself ruling again until the arrival of Massachusetts first Royal Governor, Sir William Phips in 1692.

"One of the greatest poets of the 17th century, Anne Bradstreet was born in Northamptonshire, England, ca. 1612-13, daughter to Thomas Dudley, a clerk, and Dorothy Yorke. By 1619 Dudley became a steward to the earl of Lincolnshire at Sempringham, and three years later acquired Anne's future husband, Simon Bradstreet, as an assistant, freshly graduated from Cambridge University. After a short separation, when the Dudleys and Bradstreet left the earl's service for different positions, Anne and Simon married in 1628 and lived in the household of the countess of Warwick until they emigrated--with the Dudleys--on a ship named the Arbella to America. Anne was only 18 years old, but had benefited from a good education in the noble households in which she had stayed. She was a firm puritan in religion. After short stays in Salem, Charlestown, and Newtown (now Cambridge), they all settled in Ipswich. Here she had eight children in a exceptionally happy marriage and wrote many of the poems that were eventually published in The Tenth Muse (London: Stephen Bowtell, 1650) after her brother-in-law surreptitiously took her manuscript back with him to England and had it printed without her knowledge. The Bradstreets moved to Andover, Mass., in the mid-1640s and Anne lived there until her death in 1672. Six years after her death a second edition of her poems appeared. Several Poems (Boston: John Foster, 1678), described as "Corrected by the Author, and enlarged by an Addition of several other Poems, were found amongst her papers after her death." [source: Encyclopedia Britannica]

Of her children she wrote:
I had eight birds hatcht in one nest,
Four cocks there were, and hens the rest;
I nurst them up with pain and care,
Nor cost, nor labour did I spare,
Till at the last they felt their wing,
Mounted the trees, and learn'd to sing
