China Sugar Refinery - East Point 1870s

Submitted by isioux on Sun, 09/06/2015 - 05:57

In trying to trace a possible relative listed in 1872 at "China Sugar Refinery East Point "- was that part of Jardine Matheson & Co ?

The books I've consulted don't go into this subsidiary company.

Did they ship sugar to Japan an bring back silk?  Does anyone know where to find any records of the ships, the voyages and the Masters?

thank you for your help,  


We've got some information about the refinery at:

There's a link to the Jardine archives on that page - I'm not sure if they have the type of information you are looking for, but could be worth checking.

Please let us know what you find out,
