Lt. Gov. Andrew Oliver1

M, b. 28 March 1706, d. 3 March 1774
     Lt. Gov. Andrew Oliver. A Loyalist. He was born on 28 March 1706 in Boston, Massachusetts.2 He was the son of Daniel Oliver and Elizabeth Belcher.2 Lt. Gov. Andrew Oliver graduated in 1724 from Harvard.3 He married firstly Mary Fitch, daughter of Hon. Thomas Fitch, on 20 June 1728.3 He was Secretary, Stamp-Distributor, and Lieut-Governor of Massachusetts. In 1765, soon after receiving the appointment of Stamp-officer, the building which he had fitted for the transaction of business was demolished by a mob, and he was compelled to resign. He was then allowed to enjoy his post of Secretary without molestation for several months. But before the close of the year, a report that he was seeking to be restored to his place of Stamp-officer, obtained circulation, and he was required to make a public statement upon the subject. He complied with the demand, and published a declaration, that he would not act under his commission; but this was deemed unsatisfactory, and he was desired to appear under the Liberty Tree, and there resign the office in form, and in the presence of the people. With this demand he also complied, and at the proper time, and while two thousand persons surrounded him, he made oath to the following declaration: " That he had never taken any measures, in consequence of his deputation, to act in his office as distributor of stamps, and that he never would, directly or indirectly, by himself, or any under him, make use of his deputation, or take any measures for enforcing the Stamp Act in America." The multitude gave three cheers, and allowed him to depart. But so determined a course on the part of the Whigs gave him great pain, and caused intense suffering both to himself and his family. In 1770, Mr. Oliver was appointed Lieutenant-Governor.
In 1773, several letters which he had written to persons in England were obtained by Franklin, and sent to Massachusetts. These letters caused much excitement, and became the subject of discussion throughout the Colony. The Whigs of the House of Representatives agreed upon a report, that the manifest tendency and design of these and other similar communications of Hutchinson, Paxton, Moffat, Auchmuty, Rogers, and Rome, was to overthrow the Constitution, and introduce arbitrary power. In addition to the assaults at home, Junius Americanus, a writer in the public papers in England, charged him with the grave crime of perjury. Mr. Oliver was now advanced in life. He had always been subject to disorders of a bilious nature; and unable to endure the disquiet and misery caused by his position in affairs at so troubled a period, soon sunk under the burden and died after a short illness. In private life he was a most estimable man; but his public career, though earnestly defended by his brother in-law, Governor Hutchinson, is open to censure. No man in Massachusetts was more unpopular; and Hutchinson remarks, that the violence of party spirit was evinced even at his funeral; that some members of the House of Representatives were offended because the officers of the army and navy had precedence in the procession, and retired in a body; and that "marks of disrespect were also shown by the populace to the remains of a man, whose memory, if he had died before this violent spirit was raised, would have been revered by all orders and degrees of men in the Province."4 Lt. Gov. Andrew Oliver died on 3 March 1774 in Boston at the age of 67.3

"Did Heaven appoint our chief judge Oliver,
Fill that high bench with ignoramus,
Or has it councils by mandamus ?"

Judge Oliver was proscribed and banished, and his estate was confiscated. In addition to his judicial station he was a Mandamus Councillor. He went to Halifax at the evacuation of Boston in 1776. Subsequently he embarked for England. Of the five Judges of the Superior Court of Massachusetts at the Revolutionary era, four, to wit, the subject of this notice, Edmund Trowbridge, Foster Hutchinson, and William Browne, were Loyalists. The Whig member of the Court was William Cushing. In 1774 Oliver was impeached by the Legislature for refusing to receive, as usual, a grant for his services from the Colonial Treasury, and because he would not engage to accept of any emolument from the Crown.2 Peter Oliver died in 1791 in England.2
