His seven-year regime saw the intensification of several existing royal policies, together with the imposition of new religious policies favoured by Charles I. Wentworth placed royal finances in Ireland upon a firmer footing, and continued the policy of plantation, focusing on the northwestern province of Connacht and dispossessing many – mainly old English – landowners there, though he found it difficult to attract English settlers and was determined to prevent further Scottish plantation. In religion, Wentworth continued to allow the Catholic majority to practise their faith undisturbed.
Apart from the monarch himself and his royal court, now based in southern England, there was no central institution empowered to control the three kingdoms. Each had its own privy council and parliament, those of Scotland and Ireland answerable to the monarch, who might seek the advice of his English privy council on Scottish and Irish matters, but not to the English legislature. The Scots and Irish feared being swallowed up by England as Wales had been, and they strongly opposed that form of union and vigorously defended their rights.
He also exercised controlling power over the Church of Ireland. The Scottish Reformation had caused a larger degree of separation between church and state and, in consequence, the king was not head of a state church there and would have to fight to impose political control over the presbyterians. There were also religious differences within James’s three kingdoms – deeper in Scotland and Ireland than in England and Wales – and between them. The majority of the population in each kingdom supported a form of religion different from the majority religion of the other two.
