Scholarship on the presence of Catholics in the early modern British Atlantic has tended to emphasise their experiences marginalisation, exclusion or victimisation. This study seeks to reevaluate the role of Catholics as essential and valuable place holders at the frontier of empire and explores the ways in which the British Atlantic world could offer greater prospects for advancement than those available in Britain and Ireland.
