Comments

Here are mentions of Frederick Charles Mow Fung in the Jurors Lists (see http://gwulo.com/node/6706). I'm not sure if they're all the same person, or if they refer to different generations with the same name.

1905:

c Mow Fung Frederick Charles General Manager Mutual Store     25 Des Voeux Road  

1915-17:

c Mow Fung Frederick Charles Merchant Mow Fung & Co     9 College View  

1918-1924:

c Mow Fung Frederick Charles Merchant Mow Fung & Co     82 Sai Tau Kowloon City

1925:

c Mow Fung Frederick Charles Merchant Banker & Co., Ld.     82 Sai Tau Kowloon City

1941:

c   Mow Fung, Frederick Charles Retired 17 Grampian Road, Ground floor. Kowloon City.

Frederick is referred to as a prominent Hong Kong resident, so I am surprised nobody said anything about him here.

In the interest of expanding the "web" established in Peter Hall's book and on Gwulo, I would like to point out that Frederick's sister is Elena, wife of William Francis Fincher. She is buried as Lena Fincher (Apr 17 1872 - Mar 12 1932) with her husband.

Here are some links about Frederick and the Chinese Australian Mow Fung family. Maybe someone from the family or Hong Kong will chime in.

Coincidentally, there is a 1882 photo of a house in Hong Kong "former occupied by Mr. Mow Fung," but this Mow Fung family arrived in Hong Kong around 1895, so probably no relations.
