|Critical Review of Sir Francis Head’s Narrative and of Lord Durham’s Report

Sir Francis Head was Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada during 1836-1838, when the Rebellion of 1837 occurred. Following Head's recall to Britain, Lord Durham was sent to investigate the sources of civil strife in the British North American colonies. His famous Report was very critical of Head's tenure. Head wrote his Narrative, with many of his dispatches included, to justify his actions and to argue against Britain's implicit policy of increasing democratic (i.e., republican) governance. This publication is an extended essay, written from a monarchical perspective, that sympathetically summarizes Sir Francis' Narrative while making a caustic attack on the policies and actions of the Colonial Office. Further, it alleges Lord Durham's Report to be either incompetent or pro-republican, or both. [Suggest a different description.]
