The Significance and Effects of the Queen Anne's War
The effects and significance of the Queen Anne's War in history at a local level were:

  • Queen Anne's conflict resulted in the transfer of the French claims to the territories of Arcadia, Hudson Bay and Newfoundland to the British
  • Some of the terms of the Treaty of Utrecht were ambiguous, and concerns of various Indian tribes were not included in the treaty, which resulted in future conflicts in the French and Indian Wars including the Yamasee War, Tuscarora War and the Father Rale's War. The Fox Wars also erupted during this period
  • Following the Treaty of Utrecht many British merchants found the terms of the treaty unacceptable and resorted to smuggling. This led to the 1738 War of Jenkin's Ear in which one of the smugglers, by the name of Jenkins, had his ship seized by a Spanish vessel and his ear was cut off. This incident was used as a pretext for war and American colonists attacked Spanish possessions in the Caribbean and mounted an expedition against Spanish Florida. The expedition failed but the conflicts of the French and Indian Wars would soon erupt again with King George's War.
