Relations between Scotland and England had reached a crisis point by 1705, not least with the passing by the English Parliament of the Aliens Act. With varying degrees of willingness the Scots were drawn to negotiate a new treaty with England. There was a clear division however, between those who favoured closer union with England and the Jacobites (who were wholly opposed to the Hanoverian succession following Anne’s death as agreed by the English Act of Succession) and Country Party, who hoped that by making excessive demands, any settlement between the two countries would be impossible.
