Hamilton – Town and City is almost a totally volunteer effort. It was designed by Dace Ground [widow of former Chief Justice Sir Richard Ground] and the final book penned by former editor of the Royal Gazette David White before his death.

The book launch is just in time for the anniversary celebrations set to take place next year to commemorate the 1815 move of the seat of Government from St. George’s to Hamilton.

The next book in the series will be Pembroke Parish by Dr. Clarence Maxwell.
