It was also the only colony where slavery was banned from the start although the ban was later overturned. Rum, lawyers, and Catholics were also forbidden. The Board of Trustees was eventually eliminated after rum was legalized, and an appointed governor governed the area from England until the start of the Revolutionary War.
