James II's plan to escape England to France is thwarted
James II and VII (1633-1701) - King of England and Ireland as James II and King of Scotland as James VII discovered trying to escape England. As William of Orange and his army advanced slowly towards London, many of James supporters changed sides. Even senior generals in James army, like John Churchill, went over to William. At this point James sent his wife and son to France for safety. James soon decided to flee himself, but his boat was stopped by some fishermen in Kent (as shown here) and he was taken back to London.
