Why did the Quartering Act start?
The Quartering Act was passed primarily in response to greatly increased empire defense costs in America following the French and Indian War and Pontiac’s War. An additional quartering stipulation was included in the Intolerable Acts of 1774.
What was the reason for the Quartering Act of 1774?

The Quartering Act of 1765 required the colonies to house British soldiers in barracks provided by the colonies. If the barracks were too small to house all the soldiers, then localities were to accommodate the soldiers in local inns, livery stables, ale houses, victualling houses and the houses of sellers of wine.

Reaction to the Quartering Act The 1774 Quartering Act was disliked by the colonists, as it was clearly an infringement upon local authority.
