I'd say not.  It looks very much like some sort of civic insignia, mayor or similar.  The Resident was 1800-1851, a long time before this photo.  It was a political appointment described as part diplomat, part adviser to the ruler and monitor of activities for the British government.

I've had a look to see if he appears anywhere in newspapers  - JAC Florence  was fined for not having a driving licence in 1932 and joined the RAF in 1939.  The photo looks post war?
