In time, many of these Britons also came to adopt Roman ways and serve within the Roman regime as ‘Roman citizens’. However, during the entire period in which Roman garrisons were stationed in Britain, the number of Roman citizens who had come to Britain from Rome or anywhere else within the Roman Empire only ever formed a small proportion of Britain’s overall population. 2 It was only the southern part of Britain, plus, eventually, Wales that the Romans succeeded in subduing. The tribes which inhabited what we now call Scotland and Ireland always remained outside the sphere of Roman control, even if, initially at least, the Romans were able to contain them.

It may have been Henry VIII who initiated the Reformation in England, but it was his daughter Elizabeth who consolidated that break from Rome. To remain Protestant, the country had to undergo a bitter civil war, regicide and a further bloodless Revolution at the end of the seventeenth century. Neither Henry nor Elizabeth remotely qualify for being considered tolerant in matters of religion.
England continued to remain one during the Stuart dynasty of the succeeding century and well into the early part of the eighteenth century.
