In early 2010 we visited Trinidad. While we were there we visited Lapeyrouse Cemerery in Port of Spain, the National Library, the library of the University of the West Indies in St. Augustine, and the national archives. Our time was very limited, and all these activities were very incomplete -- there is lots more there, particularly in the libraries and archives.
Here we present the pieces we collected. Surnames of particular interest to us include Guppy, Rostant, Leotaud, de Verteuil, Maingot and Labastide, but we collected other surnames that we thought had a connection to these.
