This paper examines the global reach and impact of the external Jacobite diasporas between 1688–1788. It surveys the four most common geographical areas associated with Jacobite emigration and exile: Continental Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, and the North American colonies. Within these respective regions, pertinently chosen case studies of individuals who made important contributions to their host communities - including the martial, commercial, financial, scientific, and socio-political fields - are highlighted throughout. Thus, the paper argues that both the significance of these contributions and the global dispersion of the Jacobite movement make it an important sub-field for further research within Jacobite and diaspora studies and beyond.
