Once again, local customs took precedence over any unifying measure. So what had changed in Breda in the intervening century? Calvinist ministers had always been strong opponents of catholicism, but their attitude in States-Brabant seems to have abated from the last quarter of the seventeenth century onwards.

States-Brabant was however permanently denied a provincial assembly. Unlike all the other constituent parts, the region had no delegation of its own to influence state or regional affairs. Because there were no estates or ‘States’ of Brabant (except for the pre-existing one in the south where, even after 1629, Den Bosch formally kept a seat although this was never occupied), this has created the somewhat false impression that the States-General executed direct rule here. 17 First of all, within States-Brabant a number of distinct regions can be identified: the Meierij van ’s-Hertogenbosch, the Barony of Breda and the Marquisate of Bergen op Zoom foremost among them.

Instead, from the outset the whole region was riddled with political anomalies. In the case of the Meierij, for instance, dominance by the city of Den Bosch of the surrounding countryside was much more stronger than the hold of the States-General ever was over the city itself. The urban elite for instance managed the administrative affairs of the whole Meierij. This was probably less the case in the Barony of Breda, but we need to focus more on how these regions functioned internally, and the interchange between town and countryside.
