"The Structure of Colonial Governments American colonial governments, which were established over the course of the 17th and early 18th centuries, took, as is well known, one of three basic forms. They were organized either as royal, proprietary, or corporate colonies. By the middle of the 18th century, the majority of colonies (8 of the 13) had been taken under the direct rule of the British Monarch. 3 colonies remained proprietorships, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, which "[u]ntil the Revolution ... had [a separate legislature but] the same governor as Pennsylvania." Only two, Connecticut and Rhode Island, retained their status as corporate colonies"-- Provided by publisher
