A General Agent is an agent, i.e., representative of another, who has a mandate of general nature.

Colonial use[edit]

In the Niger Rivers District the only Senior Agent, who administered the region (rather like a Factor) for the National African Company Limited (which was granted a charter and renamed Royal Niger Company Chartered & Limited in 1886), was promoted in 1882 to become the first of only two General Agents until it was absorbed by Southern Nigeria:

  • 1882 - 1888 David McIntosh (b. 1844 - d. 1888)
  • 1888 - 1 January 1900 Joseph Flint (d. 1925)
