Hoylake, in Merseyside, is where, in 1690, William III (William of Orange) set sail with 10,000 men to take part in the Battle of the Boyne, in Ireland, where he was victorious against the deposed King James VII and II of Scotland, England and Ireland. James fled to France after the battle, never to return.
