The first people to want Maine was the Wabanaki. They were there first. They would fight and were willing to share with the French.
The second was the French, They were nice to the Wabanaki and were to make lots of money trading and farming.
Then the English arrived from Massachusetts. They wanted Maine to control the fur trade, to govern, and have a buffer against the French.
Maine had no government. Settlers were taking land, fighting, and hunting anywhere. They needed a government.
I would have governed Maine a lot like today. I would give the Wabanaki a large territory and negotiate a peace treaty. Same with France.
