Seal and Signature of Tryon

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The seal and signature of William Tryon. Tryon was the royal governor North Carolina and New York. The history of Tryon’s administration is a record of folly, extortion, and crime, and he gained the name of “The Wolf of North Carolina.” He was governor of New York when the Revolutionary War broke out, and he was the last governor of that province appointed by the crown.
