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).
There, he got married, at the age of 61, to a young English girl, Elizabeth Lee, on March 19, 1795, only four months after his arrival.
In Dominica, most of the inhabitants there regarded him as the savior from the French who several times tried uprisings.
With his former military prowess, he led the British forces and local militia and aborted the attempts.
His commission also authorized him to act as full Governor in case of death or absence of Governor in Chief and Captain General William Browne (a British Loyalist born in Massachusetts, USA), who left Bermuda on October 27, 1788, never to return, although he was technically still Governor of Bermuda more than a year later.
