Henry Young was appointed as the Deputy Governor of Bombay (now Mumbai) in the year 1668. Bombay Presidency was amongst of the 3 main Presidencies and provinces of British India, which also included Madras Presidency and Bengal Presidency. The province was originally established as a trading post for the British East India Company during the 17th century at Surat. The Presidency included the regions of modern states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, regions of Konkan, Kandesh and Desh, and northwestern state of Karnataka.
The Province of Bombay did not consist of any erstwhile Princely States of India as the native rulers of the state were responsible for the internal administration of these native states. However the Bombay Presidency supervised the defence of several Indian princely states and also managed the relationship of the states and their rulers with the British authorities.
Captain Henry Young served in office till 13 November 1669. He was succeeded by Sir Matthew Gray who served as the Acting Deputy Governor of Bombay Province from 14 July 1669 to 7 June 1672.
