Early British rule, —91 The Quebec Act At first New France was to be governed by the Royal Proclamation October 7,which declared the territory between the Alleghenies and the Mississippi to be Indian territory and closed to settlement until the Indians there could be subdued.
New France became known as the Province of Quebecwhich was to have a royal governor who had the authority to call an assembly. However, the 70, French inhabitants of Quebec could neither vote nor sit in the assembly by virtue of their Roman Catholicism. The Province of Quebec, Few British Americans moved to Quebec there were perhaps migrants in alland those who did were attracted primarily by the prospect of taking control of the fur trade.
Murray sympathized with the condition and difficulties of the French and ignored the demands of the recently arrived Protestants for an assembly, with the result that an agitation by the Protestants led to his recall. He was replaced in by General Guy Carleton later 1st Baron Dorchesterwho was expected in Quebec to carry out the policy of the proclamation.
However, Carleton soon came to see that the colony was certain to be permanently French. Carleton returned to England in to press his new policy for Quebec on the government of Lord North.
The result was the Quebec Act ofwhich marked a radical departure from the manner by which British colonies in America were governed. It granted permission for Roman Catholics in Quebec to hold public office; stipulated that an appointed council, rather than an elected assembly, would advise the governor; and legitimized French civil lawthough English criminal law was to be in force.
The Quebec Act also recognized the legitimacy of the French language and the Roman Catholic faith, gave the church power to enforce the collection of tithes, and formalized the authority of the seigneurs to collect cens et rentes.
Carleton had sought to cement French loyalty to Britain. As the American Revolution would demonstrate, however, the Quebec Act did not do that. Instead, it brought about a virtual revolution in Quebec society. The Quebec Act gave the seigneurs, the church, and the clergy a degree of authority and influence they had never enjoyed even under the French regime.
Afterhowever, the bishop and the church reigned supreme in their own sphere, especially since British governing authorities were loath to interfere in religious matters. The Quebec Act also enhanced the status of the seigneurs by giving them unchallenged legal authority to set the terms and conditions of settlement on their lands.
Magnifying this important change, some seigneurs sold their holdings to members of the newly arrived English-speaking merchant class. These new seigneurs, with no understanding of the informal habitant-seigneur relationship under French rule, frequently thought of themselves—and acted—as landed gentry in their dealings with the habitants.
Carleton had erred, either misunderstanding or ignoring the underlying realities of the social structure and class relations he found when he arrived in Quebec. He imposed his own vision of what Quebec ought to be, an action that earned the British the support of the church and the seigneurs but the distinct dislike of the habitants, who soon realized just how much their position in society had been eroded.
As the years went by, that erosion would have a dramatic impact on their living standards. The influence of the American Revolution To the American colonies, the Quebec Act was menacing—it reestablished to the north and west an area despotically ruled, predominantly French and Roman Catholic, with an alien form of land tenure.
Instead of intimidating the American colonies, the act helped push the Americans to open revolt.
Indeed, the first act of the American Continental Congress in was not to declare independence but to invade Canada. The failure of that invasion ensured that the continent north of the Rio Grande would, on the recognition of American independence, be divided between the Americans and the British.
Not all American colonists had supported the cause of independence, and many had resisted it in arms. At the conclusion of hostilities, these loyalists had to make their peace with the new republic, though many went into exile.
The refugees, known as United Empire Loyalists, were the object of considerable concern to the British government, which sought to compensate them for their losses and to assist them in establishing new homes.
Nova Scotia, which to a great extent had been recently settled by American colonists, had not, except for an ineffectual rising or two, joined the revolting colonies. Overawed by British sea power and by the fortress of HalifaxNova Scotians at first kept quiet, and later many of them even made fortunes privateering against American commerce.Find the latest business news on Wall Street, jobs and the economy, the housing market, personal finance and money investments and much more on ABC News.
