Do you know of any battles that took place in and around Amritsar (Sri Darbar Sahib) during the 18th century, specifically from 1708 onwards to 1799?

If so can you provide dates, and info about the battles.

I know that Baba Deep Singh Shaheed's Dal fought Jahan Khan in 1757 just outside Amritsar and ended at Sri Darbar Sahib. 

The SIkhs fought Abdalis army in 1762 again at Amritsar.

There is a punjabi vaar called Vaar Amritsar ji ki which describes a battle between the Sikhs and Mughals in 1709 just a few months before the forces of Banda Singh Bahadur reached Punjab. You can find it on PDL

What was the result of the battle?

The Sikhs were given a "nawabgi" in 1733, and established a base in Amritsar for a few years. This nawabgi was rescinded before the invasion of Nadir Shah in 1739.

Between 1746-48 (I would say just after the chotta ghallughara) the Sikhs rebuilt Ram Rouni and established/cemented the tradition of Sarbat Khalsabi-annual meeting at Amritsar. This was taken after the capture of Amritsar.
