Looking for information about my great grandfather who worked for Hongkong Whampoa Dock Co from about 1890 to 1916.

His daughters born in Scotland both married Hong Kong Scots.

His daughter, my grandmother Florence Agnes Neave, was born in Hong Kong around 1900.

They called their house in England "Lei Yu Mun".

He features on a juror's list.
