The foundation of Amber New Vermont Estate was laid back in the second half of the 19th century. In the early years, the Vermont Estate was part of the Logie Estate. Dr. Hugh Falconer was the owner of Logie Estate and a friend of Charles Darwin. Falconer turned out to be the first person to discover the fossil remains of mammals in the Shivalik ranges of the Himalayas. He had an outstanding knowledge of Indian botany and due to this, he was asked by the commission of Bengal to study the commercial aspect of tea in the Indian market.
As an outcome, tea plants were set up in India. In the year 1842, the ownership of the estate was transferred to the hands of William Jameson. He further sold the Vermont estate to a London stock exchange listed company, Mussoorie Development Corporation.
