It is worth emphasizing that the scheme was not merely a personal whim of the earl of Egmont, for most of those military men associated with him resurrected it without his active support in 1765. "20 Not only was there no mention of any "Lord High Paramount," but the Island would remain firmly under the direct control of the Crown. The common and statute laws of Britain (except those relating to land tenure, game, and taxes) would be in force; the king's assent would be required for criminal executions (except those for mutiny) and for i8 Eighteenth-Century Prince Edward Island the appointment of officials, who would be removable by the king in council.

The quitrents were to be collected in perpetuity, but they would ultimately return a revenue to the British Treasury, not directly to the Island. However chimeric may have been the notion that the Island of St John could be selfsupporting within a few years, it was a guiding principle behind the granting of separate government, and followed naturally from the concept that private proprietors would develop the Island out of their own pockets and turn a profit in the process.
