James Hunter was my great uncle ( brother of my GF Tobias Hunter.) He lived at 11 Shelley Street and worked for S J David in 1917-1918. In 1919 he worked for my GF as a commision agent ( from HK Jurors List ). His wife Emma ( maiden name unknown) died in 1933 at 11 Shelley Street and his daughter Ellen Hunter( born 1899 ) alias Fok Shuk Wah, died also at 11 Shelley Street in 1944. She does not appear to have been interned at Stanley Camp which could be due to her Eurasian status ( maybe looked more Asian ). <Read more ...>
James Mackenzie Jack inherited the engineering company W.C. Jack & Co. Ltd. from his father, William Jack, on his death in 1919. He was serving in Salonika with his brother at the time of his father's death. I don't know his brother's name, or if he returned safely to Hong Kong. When my uncle, Leslie Warren, had to wind up C.E. Warren & Co. in May, 1941, James Jack asked him to take over the Jacks branch in Penang while the then MD took six months leave. Jack became a POW and was in the fifth transportation to Japan, where he died in a POW camp on 15 September 1944. <Read more ...>
Mrs Lily Lafleur was married with Franciscus Hubertus Joseph Alphonsus Lafleur; they had a son (Ah Tong) and daughter (Ah Kan, also known as Mary). Thanks to gwulo member annpake, more information about Lily Lafleur was found. In December 1951 she sailed from Hong Kong to London.
She passed away in 1982 and was burried at St Raphaels Cemetery Cheung Sha.
Via LinkedIn I found the granddaughter and son of Franciscus' brother in the Netherlands. Lily had visited her family in law a few years after WWII. A photo of the visit survived! <Read more ...>
