Regarding Holy Trinity Anglican Church Foundation Stone. The marker mentions that the Governor of the Windward Islands set the church's foundation stone. The British Windward Islands was a British colony existing between 1833 and 1960 and consisting of the islands of Grenada, St. Lucia, Saint Vincent, the Grenadines, Barbados (the seat of the governor until 1885, when it returned to its former status of a completely separate colony), Tobago (until 1889, when it was joined to Trinidad), and (from 1940) Dominica, previously included in the British Leeward Islands.
The colony was known as the Federal Colony of the Windward Islands from 1871 to June 1956, and then as the Territory of the Windward Islands until its dissolution in 1960.
