History

Queen Anne's War: Allies and Adversaries

In Europe

In Europe Queen Anne's War was called the War of the Spanish Succession. Phillip of Anjou, the grandson of Louis XIV of France, accepted the Spanish crown. This worried Britain, Holland and Austria because they did not want France and Spain to unite and become very strong.

North America

  • The French and Indians made sporadic raids along the New England borders.
  • The South Carolina militia destroyed the Spanish town of St. Augustine in Florida (1702).
  • The French and Spanish attacked Charlestown, South Carolina (1706).
  • British captured the French Port Royal in Acadia (now Nova Scotia) (1710).
  • British made unsuccessful attacks on Quebec and Montreal (1711).
  • Armistice was declared (1712).
  • Peace of Utrecht was signed (1713).

Colonists

During Queen Anne's War, many colonists served in local militias. Because these were local units and not part of the British Army, any surviving records are in historical societies, state libraries and archives. Most men who served in Queen Anne's War were between the ages of 16 and 60, born between 1642-1697, though some were born as early as 1632 or as late as 1701.

The Peace Terms

  1. Britain gained Newfoundland, the Hudson Bay area, and Nova Scotia.
  2. France kept control of New France, including Cape Breton, Prince Edward Island, and fishing rights in Newfoundland.
