His first mention in the Jurors Lists is in 1908, when he's listed as the Sub-Manager of the Hong Kong Hotel, and his address given as "on premises". He's shown with the same details for the lists in 1909-1911.

Then he gets a promotion, and the lists for 1912-1917 he's listed as the Manager of the Hong Kong Hotel.

From 1918-22 (the latest year we've transcribed so far), his title changes to Manager & Secretary, but other details remain the same.
