Arthur George
Hewlett / Hewlitt

Notes from Jill:

Arthur George Hewlett (sometimes spelt Hewlitt) was an architect in Hong Kong. His name appeared on an application to purchase crown land in 1913, for which my grandfather, the architect Charles Warren, also tendered. Arthur George Hewlitt is listed in Tony Lam's article on Hong Kong architects 1841-1941 as an architect who arrived in Hong Kong in 1909 and who practised with Siu Ho Ming, authorised architect 1925-1941, to form Hewlitt and Siu from 1925-1935. (Is there a link to Tony's article on Gwulo?) A letter from "Mr Hewlett, the architect" is mentioned in a government report of a meeting dated 11 June 1923, which you can access. He is given in a Jurors List  (I think 1926) as living at 75 Mount View, Victoria Road, Pokfulam.

Hewlett is mentioned on page 48 of Tony Lam's article, available online at:

He appears in the Jurors Lists from 1916 to 1919 (the latest year we have online so far) as "Hewlitt, Arthur George. Architect", but with a different address each year:

  • 1916: 22 Queen's Road Central
  • 1917: 18 Nathan Road, Kowloon
  • 1918: 18B Nathan Road, Kowloon
  • 1919: 10 Knutsford Terrace, Kowloon
