I'm researching my father in laws family and I've hit a wall early on. His father was Ronald Edward Tucker, born 1932 and he lived with his family in Hong Kong for a while. We don't know much about them; my father in law knew that Ronald thought for years that his grandmother was his mother, and biological mother his sister.
What I have found so far is this:
Nancy (born abt.1889) and Edward Tucker (abt. 1890) had a daughter called Margaret. She was born around 1914. She was unmarried when she had Ronald at about 18 years old. No father named on Ronalds birth certificate.
On a passengerlist from 1932 when Edward, Nancy and Margaret travelled to the UK, under profession, Nancy and Edward are listed as 'Warder' and Margaret as 'Teacher'.
-- Off topic question: if someone was a warder in Hong Kong around 1930's, would that person be working at a prison?--
I think they went back to the UK to have the baby (Ronald was born 3 months after they arrived) and 6 months later, they went back to Hong Kong (1933), without baby (I think; no mention of infant on the list).
Edward Tucker died 23 Nov 1939 and is buried at Happy Valley cemetery in Hong Kong.
At some point Ronald arrived in Hong Kong because he and Nancy travelled to Fremantle, Australia in 1945 with the ship HMHS Gerusalemme. This ship was used for Recovery of Allied Prisoners of War and Internees (RAPWI). Ronald was 13 years old when they left Hong Kong. No mention of Margaret on that list.
Anyone know anything of this family? Or any suggestions where I might find more information?
