  • Highland clearances 1800

  • The union with ireland and adoption of the union flag 1801

    During the American fight for independence, the Irish had raised a force of United Volunteers, announcing their loyalty to the Crown, and their influence was used to win an independent Irish Parliament.

After bribery of the Commons and gentry, Britain and Irelan ...

  • The napoleonic wars 1803 - 1815

    Following the French Revolution, Napoleon I of France began a series of European wars. His aim was the conquest of Europe.

This price meant that cereals and bread were more expensive than they needed to be and this caused considerable agitation.Othe ...

  • The accession of queen victoria; the foundation of the chartist movement 1837

    Victoria (1837-1901) succeeded her uncle, William IV in 1837, aged eighteen. Her reign would dominate the rest of the century and she would go on to be the longest reigning British monarch.

The potato famine was not confined to Ireland but, because of a massive population explosion in the previous fifty years, her rural economy had come to rely on the potato too heavily as a cheap and available source of food. The crisis was not helped by poor weather, ...


  • Repeal of the corn laws 1846

    The Corn Law Act had been passed in 1815 as a measure to protect the interests of landowners who looked as if they were about to lose out when highly inflated prices for coorn ceased with the ending of the Napoleonic Wars. This kept the price of not only corn but also bread artificially high. Although an Anti-Corn Law League formed to oppose the legislation, it was not until the potato famine in Ireland that repeal was enacted in a belated attemp ...
