De Jongh family residence, 2 Chatham Road [c.1900-c.1960]
Charles Gesner van der Voort's colleague Frans de Jongh started working in China much earlier than Charles, in 1919, in Shanghai, at Holland-China Trading Company. In 1930, Frans de Jongh and his wife moved to Hong Kong, and lived at 2 Chatham Road, where their daughter Anneke was born, in the same year. Later, they moved to Tianjin (Tientsin) and during WWII, they were interned by the Japanese in Weihsien camp.
Family member Mieke Kiebert-Melief wrote a book about Frans de Jongh's life. There is a website connected to the book: https://hierinhetoostenalleswel.nl/
