Richard Nicolls was the first acting governor of the New York colony, and it is under him that New Amsterdam became New York. Yet the proprietary form of government did cease in 1685 under the disastrous Edmund Andros, when New York became a Royal colony.
New York actually briefly stopped being a colony when it was annexed to the Dominion of New England in 1688. The next year revolts in Boston and then in New York ended the Dominion and New York became a political entity again. New York continued as a royal colony down to the American Revolution.AnswerNew York first became an English colony in 1664 when it was conquered by the English during the Second Anglo-Dutch war. The colony was granted by the English king, Charles II, to his brother James Duke of York. This arrangement was what is known as a proprietary colony. A proprietary colony was an English colony where the government was in the hands of a private person or corporate body. The proprietor could create any kind of government that he wished. In New York's case, James created a political system with a governor who ruled with a council of advisors appointed by James. It was not until 1683 that New York was first granted the right to an assembly to create laws. Even then, the assembly was beholden to James and he could veto any law that he liked. When, in 1685, James succeeded his brother Charles II to the throne and became James II New York became a royal colony.
