In the years before the Glorious Revolution, James II, the King of England had been trying to gain more control of the colonies.  A notable part of this effort was the creation of the Dominion of New England.  That was an effort to bring more of the colonies under his control.  After he was deposed, the new king did not try to extend the idea of the Dominion.  The new king did appoint some new governors, but not all of them.  In the years after the Glorious Revolution, some colonies came more under royal control through the appointment of new governors and/or through making them into royal colonies.
