The making of peace within the multiple kingdoms marked a further step away from confessional confederation. English intransigence,and internal divisions between the New Model Army and parliament,compounded tensions between the parliamentarians and Covenanters that were aggravated by the endemic hostility generated in the north of England by Scottish occupations during the 1640s (Scott 1999: 3 4 7 - 7 5 ) . However,the Covenanting Movement was itself divided over continued intervention in England prior to the complication ofCharles I handing himself over to its army in 1646.
IV The Britannic perspective favoured by James I and continued by his son Charles I faced several obstacles. The rejection of full union in 1607 meant that there was no formal British executive or legislative to effect public policy for all three kingdoms; albeit the bedchambers of the early Stuarts afforded a measure of informal policy coordination which ensured that neither James nor Charles was uncounselled in British affairs (Russell 1994: 2 3 8 - 5 6 ) . At the same time,the lack of a unified legal system required patents for honours to be issued separately for England,Ireland and Scotland which,in turn,inhibited the creation of a British aristocracy,notwithstanding the growing tendency of courtiers to hold titles in more than one kingdom.
The imperative ofconfederal action was maintained steadfastly. The English parliament should not negotiate unilaterally with Charles I , a n d the Scottish armies in England and Ireland should be supplied promptly. Escalating public indebtedness,as well as the patent mistrust engendered by Charles I,were primary considerations moving Argyll and his associates to transfer the king from the custody of the Covenanting army to the English parliament for £400,000 sterling in January 1647. This transfer revived the Movement's conservative element that covertly concluded the Engagement with Charles I to defend and 16 ALLAN I.
