GLOVER, William, governor of North Carolina, born about 1670. In 1705 Thomas Cary obtained a commission as deputy-governor of North Carolina. While collector of the rents he had neglected to settle his accounts, and the lords proprietors, disapproving of his election to this office, directed their deputies to appoint one of their number in his place. Their choice fell upon William Glover. For a time Cary yielded to this change, but afterward seized the records of the province, and proclaimed himself governor. This led to anarchy, as the colony was soon divided into factions, the Church, royalists, and adherents of the proprietaries being in Glover's division, and the party swayed by democratic instincts belonging to that of Cary. From 1706 till 1710 each party had its own government, and elected its own council. Irritated by the persecutions of Cary, the partisans of Glover at last sought,, refuge in Virginia.
