John White and others, including former members of the Dorchester Company, formed the New England Company with the assets of the dissolved Dorchester Company. John Endecott, also a member of this new enterprise, governed for the New England Company from April 1629 to June 1630 when he was replaced by John Winthrop, governor of the new Massachusetts Bay Company. Because this piece of land overlapped with previous land grants, the New England Company sought a new charter to secure their rights obtained in 1629.
