The Stuart Secret Army: English Jacobites
by Evelyn Lord

This the story of the Royal loyalists who in the end betrayed Bonnie Prince Charlie to the blood bath that was Culloden.

Spies, smugglers and poachers – sensationalism
Riots and rebellions, Jacobites in the streets, 1715 and 1745
English Jacobites hugely important feature of 18th Century History but unexplored topic
Bonnie Prince Charles romanticism continuously popular and reminiscent of Braveheart.

English Jacobites came from all walks of life. Bishops, printers, peers, poachers, members of Parliament, smugglers, soldiers of fortune and country gentlemen were all represented. They operated through a network of spies, underground clubs, and ale houses with newspapers and pamphlets publicizing their views and promoting the restoration of the Stuarts. The white rose, the twisted stem drinking glass, and the fans wielded by ladies of fashion all contained Jacobite emblems that can be seen in museums and country houses today.To the Tory party, barred from office by George I, the Jacobites provided an alternative route to power. The English Jacobites fermented plots and riots, and were involved in two major rebellions in 1715 and 1745. The former resulted in the execution of the young and handsome Earl of Derwentwater whose short life and tragic career are the subject of a special case history, the latter in the Battle of Culloden, the extinction of the Stuart cause, and the Jacobites' entry into fiction and legend.
