The trading post in his native Caribbean in which he clerked as a lad was an offshoot of New York merchant families, the Crugers and Kortrights. When his friends in St. Croix sent him to the continent for education they consigned him, as it were, to business patrons in New York. After attending King's. College (Columbia), he was firmly identified with New York, city and state.

Douglas J. Hamilton's work examines the significance of Scottish contributions to the eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Atlantic world. Scotland, the Caribbean and the Atlantic World, 1750-1820 explores the role of kinship, ethnicity, and mercantile networks in promoting Scottish participation in the British Atlantic. From the northern kingdom, regional centers challenged London's economic ascendancy over the empire. Despite its political subordination, eighteenth-century Scotland leveraged its position in the United Kingdom to advantage.

It uses a wide range of archival sources to paint a detailed picture of the lives of thousands of Scots who sought fortunes and opportunities, as Burns wrote, 'across th' Atlantic roar'.

This is the first book wholly devoted to assessing the array of links between Scotland and the Caribbean in the later eighteenth century. It uses a wide range of archival sources to paint a detailed picture of the lives of thousands of Scots who sought fortunes and opportunities, as Burns wrote, 'across th' Atlantic roar'. It outlines the range of their occupations as planters, merchants, slave owners, doctors, overseers, and politicians, and shows how Caribbean connections affected Scottish society during the period of 'improvement'. The book highlights the Scots' reinvention of the system of clanship to structure their social relations in the empire and finds that involvement in the Caribbean also bound Scots and English together in a shared Atlantic imperial enterprise and played a key role in the emergence of the British nation and the Atlantic World.

Interesting book
Granirad
The book is very much an academic piece and makes excellent use reference materials and is well documented, thereby providing a lead for anyone wishing to follow the subject further.I believe it conveys the conclusions quite well and clearly identifies Scotlands, esp Glasgow merchants, participation and/or reliance on the slave trade. Would liked to have seen a few more Scottish names associated with some of the business, Councils, Committees. Good read.
