It analyses samples a range of sermons, charges, clerical correspondence, and periodical literature to explore the emergence the idea that the Church would play an integral role in the creation of Anglicized colonies. This chapter argues that Anglican churchmen played an important role in locating the existence of an English Diaspora. It explains that while plans to establish replicas of the English Church overseas failed and colonial churches can hardly be described as ‘English’ institutions, many churchmen remained closely attached to notions of Englishness.
