Governor Bellingham is the former governor, who believes Hester should not be allowed to raise Pearl since it would only lead to the child's spiritual demise. He decides to allow Pearl to stay with her mother after Dimmesdale pleads on her behalf. John Wilson is the eldest clergyman in Boston and a friend of Arthur Dimmesdale.
