Judge Maximo Possee de Rioboo (1822-1901) was a prominent Pensacola citizen of the 19th century.

In his early twenties, he succeeded Judge William Crupper as Justice of the Peace. He later became the first Circuit Clerk for Escambia County in (date needed) and served intermittently as Escambia County Tax Collector in 1845 and 1847. He was also the U.S. Shipping Commissioner at the Port of Pensacola for 16 years.

De Rioboo married Marie Atherias Janeau Brosset between 1854-1855, and they had three daughters.[1] He was a polyglot of five languages. His obituary in the Daily News noted that he was "one of Pensacola's oldest native born citizens" and "the last of his name," his three daughters having married.[2]
