According to "The Great Fire of Hong Kong" by Adam Nebbs the house named Glenealy was the home of the taipan of Gibb, Livingstone and was situated on the site now occupied by the Roman Catholic Cathedral.

Referring to the new Roman Catholic Cathedral site, on page 3 of its December 8, 1883 edition, The China Mail notes that “The site was bought by the Catholic Mission from Messrs Gibb Livingstone & Co. for $50,000, including the lot where St. Joseph’s College stands and the house called Glenealy.”
