Extract from Sir William Young's 'Almanac for the Island of Tobago in the year 1810.' Young was Governor of the island from 1809 until his death in 1815. At this time the Governor was appointed by the British crown although Tobago also had its own legislative council and laws. The Justices of the Peace were the main law enforcers on the island and here Young has listed the men who acted in this role for the town of Scarborough.
