The following list is taken from THE TRINIDAD OFFICIAL & COMMERICAL REGISTER and ALMANACK for 1870, compiled by Henry F J GUPPY F.A.S.L. Please note it is a partial list of Chief Officers taken from page 21. I obtained the publication from the British Library in London (shelfmark P.P.2587.aa). There were dates against each name which I have omitted through lack of time.
