Hot Place to Break in

A burglar(s) broke in to the the residence of the first governor, Henry Pottinger, on April 26, 1843. A year later on July 16, the residence was again broken in to, but this time, the occupant was John Francis Davis, the second governor. Records did not show what were stolen; or whether it was the same people who committed these 2 burglaries a year apart, …

The governor's residence, located at 1, Battery Path, Central, was built in 1842-43. The present three-story building that housed the French Mission and later the Court of Final Appeal was built in 1917.
