This chapter focuses on trade consuls and ambassadors. Charged with representing the crown overseas and governing English communities, these political leaders acquired valuable experiences that defined successive ventures, both through the tangible presence of leaders who participated in multiple overseas ventures and through the many accounts they published of their exploits around the world. Their presence, moreover, helped a weak state use private companies to project itself abroad through these informal civil authorities.

Keywords:   English settlements, trade consults, English communities, political leaders, private companies
