Gunpowder | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong


Hello everyone, 

Can anyone guide me to a source of information on gunpowder trade around HK 1850s and before ?

Are there any newspapers available for this time period?

Tracing John Peter Morgan or similar name, 1850s and before, connected with spice trade, sailing, shipping.

thank you,




There is a newspaper available as far back as 1842, The Friend of China and Hong Kong Gazette, see:

And some tips about researching people:
