James CHOY HING [1869-1957]
Henry Ching writes:
James Choy Hing arrived in HK from Australia and lived at No.2 Park Road (there is a post about this house on Gwulo, http://gwulo.com/node/23308). The father was a co-founder of the Sun Company department store in Hong Kong. Gwulo also has a photo of the hearse at his funeral, near the Hop Yat Church at which, I think, he was an Elder (if that is the correct term).
Perhaps of some interest also, James the father adopted a daughter in Australia, named Pauline Ah Hee. Pauline married a David Yee, and their daughter was Gloria Joyce Yee who married H.O.Kees in Hong Kong. Kees fought in the battle in December, 1941 as a member of the HKVDC, and became a POW in Shum Shui Po. There is a reference in Harry Ching’s diary to Gloria who was arrested by the Japanese gendarmes in November, 1943 and imprisoned, suspected of being a spy.
