ordinary subjects, also reported these rumours.22 A report circulated in the Spanish Netherlands that James was so angered by Buckingham’s behaviour towards the Spanish ambassadors that he had committed him to the Tower of London, and this foreshadowed later reports that James had imprisoned Buckingham for treason.23 Disgruntled English Catholics did not need outside encouragement to believe that powerful individuals were plotting against James. In February, a priest approached William Trumbull, the English ambassador in the Spanish Netherlands, saying that he had

include consideration of these writers. However, it seems appropriate because they moved the argument on from one that concentrated upon the primitive church to one that focused on very recent events. Moreover, their attack on Elizabeth was also an attack upon Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. I have decided not to examine the writings of the Appellants because they do focus upon the responsibility of the Jesuits for the Catholics’ plight in Elizabethan England.

population in the city well before the famine influx of the later 1840s, already producing a second generation. Indeed, in his evidence to the Irish Poor Report commissioners in 1834, Rev. Parker estimated that 50% of the Irish in the city had been born in Britain.19 The accelerating arrival of this new element had a profound impact on the internal dynamics of the pre-existing Catholic community. It has been argued that by 1800 the native English Catholic Church was growing steadily in strength and confidence and that a gradual transfer of influence and leadership was

concern for the safety of the Church in Germany in his letters to the German hierarchy.99 Like the French bishops, the English Catholic hierarchy decided in 1937 not to criticise the persecution of the Church in Germany in public so as not to provoke further reprisals by the regime: The statements of Germany’s political leadership have made it entirely clear that Christianity as such is considered to be an obstacle to the reconstruction of Germany and that they anticipate to get rid of it in one way or another. You have therefore warned your flock of further and more

particular interest because they are a rare but substantial survival from a devout Catholic family of the period. 2 Charlotte collected 1,763 personal letters written between 1779 and 1824 and had them bound together into twenty-one volumes which were then preserved in the family. 3 The survival of personal letters is particularly problematic among English Catholic families living under the penal laws which had caused many of them financial difficulties and disrupted their record keeping.

personal danger if they did not flee repression. At varying times, the harshest possible punishments hung over English Catholics and Protestants, Irish and Scottish Jacobites, United Irishmen and Jacobin radicals. The extent of their victimhood should not be exaggerated over the long duration, but neither should it be ignored. In addressing these and other issues, we attempt to complicate the picture of diaspora-formation by addressing early modern religious and military diasporas on the continent, as well as seaborne settlements in North America and beyond. In so doing

problems, Philip would demand toleration for English Catholics, but Parliament might vote a generous supply just to prevent the match from taking place.19 The Venetian ambassador also suspected that James wished to threaten Parliament with the completion of the match in order to blackmail it into giving him money.20 Some were cynical enough to believe that James was fully aware that he was being deceived by the Spanish ambassadors about their willingness to conclude the match, but continued with the negotiations because it provided him with a bargaining chip against

Christianity.78 Throughout Blundell’s surviving correspondence there is little engagement with any of the issues that were dividing English Catholics. However, his commonplace books provide some important, if brief, 145 Reading and reflections insights into his position on central divisive issues, most notably his attitude towards church papistry, his position on the divide between secular and regular clergy and his interpretation of the controversial work of Thomas White. Although Blundell was an open recusant, we have already seen that he corresponded with church papists

made out the conforming Princess Elizabeth to have been a kind of martyr.63 There is, at root, a semantic problem here. What might and should we mean by ‘Catholics’?64 John Bossy presented a sophisticated, less confessional and more sociological account of the English Catholic community.65 But that very phrase, ‘the Catholic community’, and Bossy’s characterisation of Catholicism as the first of the post-Reformation non-conformities, continued to leave out of account a plurality of Catholic communities of different sorts, and Catholics of no community, except that
