Subject: RE: BS: Henry VIII - The Mind of a Tyrant
True. I should have stated Western Europe. I was thinking of James when I wrote the post. The American colonies were initially settled by dissenters and commercial interests [if you include Newfoundland] although the first couple of attempts failed.
Getting back to Henry, it might be said that he created the atmosphere which people left in order to seek a healthier climate.
