Henry's grandfather, Gustavus Hamilton, had a distinguished military career, was raised to the King's Privy Council and became Viscount Boyne in the Irish peerage.
Following the passage of the Quebec Act in 1774, he was appointed Lieutenant Governor of Detroit, where he led the King's 8th Regiment.
From Detroit, he directed the Indians during the American Revolutionary War.
In every way, he was a very good, capable, honest, efficient and trustworthy bachelor Governor.
It is not well known, even by locals, that the city motto "Hamilton Sparsa Collegit" - as shown on the commemorative coin above -is not directly about the city but about how Governor "Hamilton had brought together the scattered." Later, he was Governor of the much bigger (more than ten times the size) but less populated Caribbean island of Dominica in the Leeward Islands (not to be confused with the Spanish-speaking Dominican Republic).
