Title
Tartan and Pure Laine: James Murray and the Fate of Quebec
Abstract
Following the British conquest of New France in 1760 and four years of military rule, the British government appointed its first civil Governor of the Province of Quebec, the Scottish-born James Murray (1721-1794). The author describes Murray's governance policies during his tenure in office from 1764 to 1768, how he protected the French language, culture and religion in the province, and the difference in the relationship of the Scots with Catholicism and with France during this period. She also describes the efforts of the Jacobites to restore the Catholic Stuart monarchy to the British throne.
