Nobility of the World
Volume VIII - Jacobite

Jacobitism was (and, to a far more limited extent, remains) the political movement dedicated to the restoration of the Stuart kings to the thrones of England, Scotland, and Ireland. The movement took its name from the Latin form Jacobus of the name of King James II and VII. Jacobitism was a response to the deposition of James II and VII in 1688 when he was replaced by his daughter Mary II jointly with her husband and first cousin William of Orange. The Stuarts lived on the European mainland after that, occasionally attempting to regain the throne with the aid of France or Spain. The primary seats of Jacobitism were Ireland and Scotland, particularly the Scottish Highlands. In England, Jacobitism was strongest in the north, and some support also existed in Wales.

Many embraced Jacobitism because they believed parliamentary interference with monarchical succession to be illegitimate, and many Catholics hoped the Stuarts would end discriminatory laws. Still other people of various allegiances became involved in the military campaigns for all sorts of motives. In Scotland the Jacobite cause became entangled in the last throes of the warrior clan system, and became a lasting romantic memory. The emblem of the Jacobites is the White Rose of York. White Rose Day is celebrated on 10 June, the anniversary of the birth of the Old Pretender in 1688.


The Jacobite Claimants to the Thrones of England, Scotland, France and Ireland

  • James II and VII (6 February 1685 - 16 September 1701).
  • James III and VIII (16 September 1701 - 1 January 1766), James Francis Edward Stuart, also known as theChevalier de St. George, the King over the Water, or the Old Pretender.
  • Charles III (1 January 1766 - 31 January 1788),  Charles Edward Stuart, also known as Bonnie  Prince Charlie, the Young Chevalier, or the Young Pretender.
  • Henry IX and I (31 January 1788 - 13 July 1807), 
  • Henry Benedict Stuart, also known as the Cardinal King.

Since Henry's death, none of the Jacobite heirs has made a public claim to the English or Scottish or combined British thrones. The current representative is the senior co-heir-general of King Charles I, Franz, Duke of Bavaria.The main part of the Kingdom of Ireland is now the Republic of Ireland. From the late eighteenth century Irish nationalist and separatists pursued their aims through Republicanism and there is no Jacobite support in any part of Ireland.



The Peerage as it would have been without the 1688 Revolution

This is a listing of the heirs of the extant Peerage of England, Scotland and Ireland as it stood on 10th December 1688, when James II left the Kingdom, and including those Peerages created by him in Ireland until his defeat at the Battle of the Boyne. It does not include those Peerages under Attainder at that date, nor those (mainly Baronies by Writ) which were called out of abeyance for the first time in the 19th and 20th centuries. The original grantee's name is given only for Jacobite peerages at present.


The list of the extant Jacobite titles, the original grantees and their present holders when known, relies on The Jacobite Peerage by the Marquis of Ruvigny for most of its source material. The Stuart Kings in exile (James II 1689-1700, James III 1700-1766, Charles III 1766-1788 and Henry IX 1788-1807) were accorded many of the privileges of their royal rank by foreign sovereigns including recognition either explicitly or implicitly of the various titles of nobility, baronetcies and knighthoods conferred by all but the last, Henry IX, who declined the exercise of these prerogatives.


The total number of Peers created in the Peerage of England after 1688 was thirty, Scotland twenty-nine and Ireland twenty-six. Seven English, twelve Scottish and fifteen Irish baronetcies were also created. Of this total a maximum of three English Earldoms and one English Viscountcy, four Scottish Dukedoms, four Scottish Earldoms, ten Scottish Lordships, two Irish Viscountcies (of which one was merged with a Jacobite Scottish Earldom) and one Irish Barony have survived. None of these titles are used by their present heirs and they are unrecognized in English, Scottish, Irish, or United Kingdom law. No doubt the heirs of the Irish peerages could make a case for their recognition by the Republic of Ireland if the Republic was to lift its present ban on the recognition of titles, particularly in the case of the Barony of Nugent created while James II was both de jure and de facto Monarch. I have suggested that two titles of which Ruvigny had not determined the succession may have survived; one would be held by an Italian nobleman, the other by a Spaniard.


Baronies by Writ which had been called out of abeyance before 1688 are included; but not those called out of abeyance for the first time after 1688. Those which had been called out of abeyance before 1688, or existing Baronies which had fallen into abeyance afterwards and been called out of abeyance by the de facto Sovereigns in the person of eldest co-heiress are listed, on the presumption that the Crown would have acted in equity had the Stuart kings remained on the throne.
