The competition began in 1925-26, when Rolland Beaumont, the South African Test player who had moved to Trinidad and become manager of an oil company, donated the cup to be played for by North Trinidad and South Trinidad. Beginning with the 1958-59 season the annual match was granted first-class status. In 1970-71 East Trinidad and Central Trinidad joined the competition, which now had two preliminary matches and a final.
In 1971-72 the competition was renamed the Texaco Cup. From 1975-76 to 1977-78 the competition was decided on a round robin format, with six matches each season. In 1978-79 Tobago joined the competition, and there were ten round-robin matches. That was the final season in which the Texaco Cup had first-class status.
In 1975-76 the Beaumont Cup was revived, to be contested by two teams again, in an annual match between South and Central Trinidad and North and East Trinidad. It had first-class status from 1975-76 to 1979-80, and from 1982-83 to 1984-85.
The Beaumont Cup was also held as a non-first-class contest between South and Central Trinidad and North and East Trinidad in 1980-81, 1981-82 and 1985-86. The non-first-class contest between the two teams continued under the names Trintoc Trophy (1986-87 to 1995-96) and Gerry Gomez Memorial Trophy (1996-97 to 2000-01).
