These battles helped to promote metropolitan interest in colonial affairs, especially in the wake of the Peace of Utrecht, which had borne testimony to the increasing competition among the European powers for the spoils of imperial trade. 27 Hamilton charged the Speaker with profiteering from his lucrative position as the island’s collector of customs and accused other family members of corruption. The Beckfords counterclaimed that the governor had overstepped his authority and had used his position to overawe the islanders.
