Hong Kong Magistrates Court records 1910ish


Can anyone tell me if such records are available and where and how I may go about accessing them?

Thanking all in anticipation.

Regards Bob


I don't know if the records are available, but a roundabout way may be to follow the reports in the newspapers. Gillian Bickley has a book "A Magistrate's Court in Nineteenth Century Hong Kong", and the writeup says:

... the second [part] is devoted to transcriptions of selected accounts published in the China Mail of judgments delivered by Frederick Stewart.

Hi David and thank you for your response. I have tried the newspapers but being as tech savvy that I am NOT, have a lot of trouble finding them then navigating around them. I will try again.

Regards Bob
