Background:
            Jeffery Amherst was the son of a prominent lawyer from Riverhead, Sevenoaks, Kent, England. At the age of twelve he became a page in the household of the 1st Duke of Dorset. He was appointed a cornet in the Guards in 1735 and rose rapidly through the ranks due to his patrons, the Duke of Dorset and Lord Ligonier. He saw service in Europe before being chosen to command the Louisbourg expedition in 1758. The king conferred on him the local rank of major general in America, with James Wolfe under his command as brigadier in America. The attack began on 8 June and Louisbourg capitulated on 27 July 1758. Later in the year Amherst was made commander-in-chief in America. In 1759 Wolfe captured Quebec, and the next year Montreal surrendered to Amherst on 8 September 1760. 

For the next three years he was occupied with reconciling the Western Indian tribes to British rule.  However, he lacked imagination and sensitivity in dealing with the Indians, which contributed, in part, to Pontiac's Rebellion.   After peace was declared in the war with France in 1763, Amherst returned to England, and although he was twice asked by the king to take command in America during the Revolution, he declined on both occasions. 

In 1776 the king conferred on him the title, Lord Amherst. He was appointed commander-in-chief in 1778 and continued in that capacity and as an advisor to the government until 1782, although he had little influence over the direction of the war, which was exercised by Lord George Germain. He concentrated his efforts on administrative duties, and, with the entry of France into the war, strengthened the home defences until the fall of the North administration in 1782. As war with France loomed, he was recalled in 1793 and again appointed commander-in-chief. By this time he was nearing 80 years of age, and he remained in this position for only two years before retiring once more. He died on 3 August 1797 and was buried in the parish church at Sevenoaks.            
Contents:
            

The Papers consist of official correspondence, monthly and weekly military returns (troops, vessels/ships, provisions, arms), marching orders, applications for commissions, petitions and memorials, journals, commercial contracts, order books, reports and plans accumulated by Amherst in the course of his careers during the Seven Years' War (known as the French and Indian War in North America) and the American Revolution. Some correspondence of Amherst's predecessors in the North American command, Lord Loudoun (John Campbell) and James Abercromby, is included. Amherst's correspondence provides a record of his communications with the key political and military leaders of the day pertaining to the running and organisation of the British war machine during these periods of conflict and the intendant circumstances. It also covers home security and defense matters in and around Great Britain during the American Revolutionary period. Key topics covered include British military -  army, navy, provincials (dispositions and operations), politics and government (governors and statesmen), foreign relations (Britain and France, Britain and United States), commerce and trade (merchants, purveyors, fur trade), native/indigenous affairs, health and welfare (disease, climate, hospital services, West Indies), and covers colonies of North America including Canada and the United States, and the West Indies (Caribbean). Because of the role of the commander-in-chief during times of conflict, conditions within the colonies can be gleaned incidentally from the sources. Women's voices and circumstances are few but included.

Volume 55, relating to the West Indies during the period of the Seven Years' War, provides source material documenting the Caribbean as the principal theatre of war. Starting after the occupation of Guadeloupe, the richest of France's Caribbean islands, it covers the period which saw the British capture of most of the significant French or Spanish sugar producing islands. Well documented are the British preparations, invasions, and occupations of Dominica (1761), under command of Lord Andrew Rollo and Commodore James Douglas; Martinique (1762), under command of Major-General Robert Monckton and Admiral George Rodney; and Cuba (1762), under leadership of admirals Sir George Pocock and George Rodney and army command of the 3rd Earl of Albemarle. Prevalence of sickness and its adverse consequences to the army is found throughout the documents. After 1763 peace treaty, documents withdrawal and reduction of British forces and personnel from Cuba, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Bermuda. Various types of documents accompany the correspondence with supporting data.
