On August 31, 1694, William Craven, 1st Baron Craven - Palatine - appointed John Archdale to be his Deputy in both sections of Carolina. Archdale had been a Lords Proprietor when he purchased the John Berkeley share of Carolina in 1678, but he soon thereafter gave this share to his son, Thomas Archdale. There is no evidence that he actually sat on any Executive Council in Albemarle County.
On this same date, John Archdale was appointed as the Governor of all Carolina and he arrived in Charles Town in early 1695 (which makes him being on any Executive Council a moot point). Archdale appointed Thomas Harvey as the Deputy Governor to lead the government in Albemarle County.
On this same date, five (5) of the other Lords Proprietors sent over "blank deputations" for both Albemarle County and Charles Town.
