comment Were the Barons who pushed King John to Sign the Magna Carta descended from the Normans?
Thanks! I get the whole concept of french names the the fact that the Normans were decedents of the vikings...etc. I just found it very interesting that they were, essentially, Norman families fighting over control of England. It speaks to why the Barons were comfortable inviting the French king to depose King John. They were, in essence, just trading one French king for another. Especially interesting to me was, according to the book, that most of the baronial resistance came from the North. I would have thought those would have the weakest association with France.

comment Did the civil wars of 17th century England facilitate an independent spirit in the American colonies?
All interesting points, but not what I asked. Certainly the notion of rebellion and the emphasis on representative bodies effected the colonies. I'm asking if the turmoil in England let to a de facto Laissez-faire policy toward the Colonies.
