This chapter discusses the ways in which independent slave traders achieved solidarity with disparate opponents of the Royal African Company. The 1698 Act to Settle the Trade to Africa helped broaden and strengthen the power and influence of the independent slave traders’ lobby so that, by 1712, they could effect a complete deregulation of England’s slave trade.
