Events of 1702




  • Delawaremarker designated a separate colony.
  • Queen Anne's War (1702–1713). The second of the North American Wars fought from 1689 to 1763, it is concurrent with the War of the Spanish Succession in Europe but is entirely due to the unresolved commercial and colonial rivalry between Great Britainmarker and Francemarker.
  • The British East India Company buys control of the New (or English) Company that was set up as a rival trading organisation in 1698. An Act of Parliament then amalgamates the two as "The United Company of Merchants of England Trading to the East Indies". The charter will be renewed several times in the 18th century, each time with financial concessions to the Crown.
