Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and have used it to aid my research of an ancestor who lived in Treverbyn from circa 1900-1910/1911. I know that N.J Ede built it next to the old Peak Hotel, and that later it was replaced by the Peak Mansions and finally the Peak Galleria, I think that's all, I can't seem to find any records online. Does anyone have any additional info on the house (e.g., was it rented or bought?) or any memories of it?? The ancestor in question was called Herbert Edmund Tomkins if that's of any use. Any reply would be much appreciated!

Here are some resources for researching buildings, in case you haven't already seen them:

You can track other residents via the Directory & Chronicle, eg this Google search

If you could make a page for Mr Tomkins (, it's aleays good to learn more about residents of old Hong Kong.

Hi David, unfortunately I've already tried those links, thank you though!
