John Mason, Governor of Jersey 1659-1660

Mason was appointed Governor by Parliament on 28 June 1659 and sworn in the following year on 19 January. He was colonel of one of the Regiments stationed in Jersey but did not stay long, because at the Restoration of the Monarchy, Charles II restored Henry Jermyn to the Governorship he had held before the Commonwealth Invasion in 1651.
