Gilbert Alexander HARRIMAN [1900-1981]

Submitted by jill on Sat, 12/05/2020 - 03:13

The name of Gilbert Harriman is remembered in my family as the trainer of my grandfather, Charles Warren’s racing ponies, known as the “Tile” ponies, during the years 1920-1923. When one of the Tile ponies won the Professional Cup at the Happy Valley Derby, a photographer was hired to commemorate the occasion, snapping Charles Warren and his daughter Evelyn together with Harriman and the magnificent trophy for posterity. The cup has sadly disappeared. After Charles Warren’s death in 1923 the Tile ponies were all sold and Harriman’s connection with our family ceased.

In my efforts to unravel the social circle of my grandfather Charles Warren from the names of the people who attended his funeral or sent wreaths, I've had difficulty identifying this person because of differences in the spelling of his surname and also the date of his death. Carl Smith describes him as a marine engineer, which seems right as we can find him in the Jurors Lists of 1909-11 as Foreman at the Taikoo Dockyard. There is a John George Swanston listed at the DBS in 1887 which would probably mean that he was born in Hong Kong.

William ANDERSON [????-1950]

I'm interested to find out more about William Anderson who was the Managing Director of Anderson Music Company and who was one of the first residents of Broadwood Road and close neighbour of my grandfather, Charles Warren. The Rate Book of 1918-1919 has William Anderson at "Gilstead", 18 Broadwood Road, which I believe was one of the houses built by my grandfather's company.  (The Jury List recording Anderson at 19 Broadwood Road must be a typo).

Son of Honorato d’’Aquino and Helena Goularte d’Aquino. Married Anna Maria de Consuelo d’Aquino b. 9.3. 1891.

The D’Aquinos or De Aquinos were a prominent Macanese family dating back to the eighteenth century and who emigrated to Hong Kong in the late nineteenth century. Dr Roy Eric Xavier has kindly sent me the link to his recent article on Macanese families:  http://www.macstudies.net/2015/08/31/mac-families-in-context-part-2/

John OLSON [1879-1879]

Submitted by jill on Mon, 01/26/2015 - 03:38

To avoid confusion with the other John Olsons, this was the first son of John Olson snr. and my great-grandmother. Her name is given as Yau Kum on the birth certificate of my grandmother, Hannah Mabel Olson, John Olson’s second child by her. (He had changed his name from Jakobsson to Olson at the time of his son’s birth.) The gravestone inscription, which is very worn, reads “Sacred to the Memory of JOHN, infant son of J. and Y. Olson.
