The Development of Orangeism in Northern England

The Development of Orangeism in Northern England

(p.36) Chapter 2 The Development of Orangeism in Northern England
Faith, Fraternity and Fighting
Liverpool University Press

This chapter describes how, within the Orangemen's ranks, there was an intermingling of migrants, who shared enough common aspirations to make the organisation work. It also attempts to explain the key elements of a process of development that saw the Orange Order successfully, and permanently, planted in the industrial towns of the far north by the mid-Victorian period, and specifically reviews the ebb and flow of Orangeism in northern England. Orangeism was strongest in places where radicalism and a whiff of Jacobinism were in the air. The period of the famine hinted at at least the prospect of a different kind of relevance to Orangeism. During the First World War, the Order suffered as men of a loyalist disposition volunteered for war.
