This chapter discusses the decline of the Anglo-Dutch communities in England. The Maidstone community was unable to manage to keep a Dutch church since the Austin Friars had too many problems during the 1650s to offer much assistance. Maidstone became the first Dutch church to disintegrate. The collapse of Maidstone was closely followed by the dissolution of the community in Mortlake, while Yarmouth, the smallest of the Dutch communities, survived until 1680. The larger Dutch church in Colchester was still active in 1688, however, the Civil Wars in England proved especially detrimental. Essentially, Archbishop Laud sought to integrate these communities into the English Church, as part of his more general ecclesiastical programme. This chapter argues that it was not Laud's Injunctions which accelerated the process of disintegration. It was the chaotic years during the Civil Wars and the Interregnum which proved detrimental to these communities.
