The cat­tle dri­vers would call out "Chuig" or "Chuig an bothar" (mean­ing "away" or "to the road"), and the sound was con­verted by Eng­lish peo­ple to the pe­jo­ra­tive term "Whig" or "Whiggamore".

    Exclusion Crisis

    Under Lord Shaftes­bury's lead­er­ship, the Whigs in the Par­lia­ment of Eng­landwished to ex­clude the Duke of York (who later be­came King James II) from the throne due to his Roman Catholi­cism, his favour­ing of monar­chi­cal ab­so­lutism, and his con­nec­tions to France. They be­lieved the heir pre­sump­tive, if al­lowed to in­herit the throne, would en­dan­ger the Protes­tant re­li­gion, lib­erty and property. The first Ex­clu­sion Bill was sup­ported by a sub­stan­tial ma­jor­ity on it...

    Glorious Revolution

    After the Glo­ri­ous Rev­o­lu­tion of 1688, Queen Mary II and King William III gov­erned with both Whigs and To­ries, de­spite the fact that many of the To­ries still sup­ported the de­posed Roman Catholic James II. William saw that the To­ries were gen­er­ally friend­lier to royal au­thor­ity than the Whigs and he em­ployed both groups in his gov­ern­ment. His early min­istry was largely Tory, but grad­u­ally the gov­ern­ment came to be dom­i­nated by the so-called Junto Whigs, a group of yo...

    Al­though William's suc­ces­sor Anne had con­sid­er­able Tory sym­pa­thies and ex­cluded the Junto Whigs from power, after a brief and un­suc­cess­ful ex­per­i­ment with an ex­clu­sively Tory gov­ern­ment she gen­er­ally con­tin­ued William's pol­icy of bal­anc­ing the par­ties, sup­ported by her mod­er­ate Tory min­is­ters, the Duke of Marl­bor­ough and Lord Godol­phin. How­ever, as the War of the Span­ish Suc­ces­sion went on and be­came less and less pop­u­lar with the To­ries, Marl­bor­ou...

    19th century

    Many of the Whigs who had joined with Pitt would even­tu­ally re­turn to the fold, join­ing again with Fox in the Min­istry of All the Tal­ents fol­low­ing Pitt's death in 1806. The fol­low­ers of Pitt—led until 1809 by Fox's old col­league the Duke of Port­land—re­jected the label of To­ries and pre­ferred to call them­selves The Friends of Mr. Pitt. After the fall of the Tal­ents min­istry in 1807, the Fox­ite Whigs re­mained out of power for the bet­ter part of 25 years. The ac­ces­sion of...
