How did the british gain french territory in north America?
Through the French and Indian War, when the French were defeated they lost all of their colonial territory in North America. The french had lost all of their land, and also the natives.
The French were a major power, the third most powerful probably, in North America. The French had a very large claim in North America, particulary in Northern America and the Caribbean.

There was no United States in 1763. There were British colonies on the North American mainland that stretched from Georgia in the south to Ontario and Newfoundland in the north.
