William Bennet Perot (1791 - 1871) was the postmaster of Hamilton, Bermuda, a horticulturist and parliamentarian. He was the creator of the (now famous) Perot stamps, the first that were issued in Bermuda. These stamps are highly prized by collectors today, sometimes getting as high as six figures on the international market. Only 11 Perot stamps are known to have survived today and three of them are owned by Queen Elizabeth.
