  “L” is for Ludwell, Philip [1638-1723]. Governor. Born in England, Ludwell migrated to Virginia where with the help of his cousin he obtained a number of colonial offices. Returning to England in 1689, he was appointed governor of North Carolina by the Lords Proprietors—but spent little time in the colony. In 1691, the proprietors appointed him governor of all of Carolina and sent him to Charleston. His mission was to curb the anti-proprietary party—the Goose Creek Men—and buttress the proprietary party. He arrived during a time of intense political strife and was unpopular. The pirate trade continued to flourish. His supporters in the assembly accused him of taking bribes and refused to pay his salary. In 1693, little more than a year after his arrival, Philip Ludwell left South Carolina and moved back to Virginia.
