Présentation du contenu

The Haldimand papers and maps document events in North America during the pivotal period from the beginning of the Seven Years' War to the end of the American Revolution and early Loyalist settlement. The material provides information bearing on many of the significant developments of the time and includes correspondence with military figures such as Generals Jeffery Amherst, Thomas Gage, James Murray and Sir Guy Carleton; correspondence with various civil and military offices and their heads such as the Admiralty, the Provincial Navy, Lord Barrington, Secretary at War; Lord Dartmouth, and Lord George Germain, Secretaries of State; and various governors and lieutenant-governors. Also included are records relating to Indian affairs, civil government, loyalists, explorations, military affairs, secret intelligence, state prisoners and personal papers. Within each volume, the documents are generally arranged chronologically. Original microfilmed records are located on the following microfilm reels: A-609 to A-618, A-661 to A-671, A-677 to A-692, A-735 to A-754, A-760 to A-780.

Informations sur les modalités d’entrée

Additional Manuscripts 21661-21892 were presented to the British Museum (now the British Library), in 1857, by Lieutenant-General Frederick Haldimand's great-nephew, the philanthropist William Haldimand (1784-1862) and contain his official papers. From 1879 to 1888, the Haldimand papers were transcribed by the National Archives of Canada in a transcription programme initiated by the first Dominion Archivist, Douglas Brymner. From 1914 to 1931, the transcripts were gradually despatched to Ottawa, where they constituted the old "B" Series (volumes B.1 to B.232). Between 1962 and 1969, microfilm copies of the originals were also obtained.
