Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Francis Robert Harris, 3rd Baron Harris GCSI (14 August 1810-23 November 1872), was a British peer, Liberal politician and colonial administrator. Harris was the son of Lieutenant-General William Harris, 2nd Baron Harris. He succeeded his father as third Baron Harris in May 1845 at the age of 34. The following year he was appointed Governor of Trinidad, a post he held until 1854. Lord Harris played a major role the development of Trinidad, initiating the system of counties and wards, the primary education system, the postal system, a public library and brought piped water to Port of Spain. He opened the Government House (now the Red House) and constructed the Governor''s House (now the President''s House) and established the Royal Botanic Gardens. Lord Harris played an important role in the early settlement of Indian indentured labourers in Trinidad. He was also considered a strong proponent of an Anglicisation policy which sought to make Trinidad more English in its institutions and laws. This drew him criticism from the French Creole elite.
