Notes for JOHN HATTON PORTER-HATTON:
THE HATTONS OF WEXFORD and IRELAND
Wexford Hattons of Great Clonard (via John) and Prospect (via Loftus)
Compiled January 1999 by David A. Crerar, 1166 Melville Street #1501, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6E 4P5
http://www.rootsweb.com/~nspictou/elect_text/wexfordhattons.html
i. HARIETTE HATTON = Rev. James Porter
The Reverend James Porter was of Drumnakilly, Armagh. They had one son:
i. JOHN HATTON PORTER-HATTON (b.1858) = Margaret Louisa Wright (Jackson)
John Porter was of Prospect, Wexford. He assumed the additional surname and arms of Hatton by Royal Licence 5 October 1908 [see G.D.Ms. 802, no.8](Arms: 1st and 4th, azure on a chevron between three garbs or an annulet gules (Hatton), 2nd and 3rd per chevron argent and sable, three bells countercharged, a bordure gules (Porter). Motto: Virtus tutissima cassis) [Irish Genealogy Office, MS 111, pp.231-32]. He married in 1905 Margaret Louisa, who was widow of David Jackson of Yokohama, Companion of the Imperial Order of the Rising Sun ( brother of Sir Thomas Jackson, Bart) and who was the daughter of Robert T. Wright. formerly of Ballinode, Monaghan County [Burke’s Peerage]. He was the Manager of the Provincial Bank of Ireland, Newry, Co.Down, N.Ireland, and lived on Hill Street. He was member of the United Counties Club, Newry [see Burke’s for Coat of Arms].


Notes for DAVID JACKSON:
A presentation Bowl with Chrysanthemum Design of the late 18th early 20th Century was presented to David Jackson by the Emperor Meiji in appreciation of his work in setting up the banking system in Japan. It was donated by his descendant, David Hugh Plunkett Brown to the Vancouver Museum. A photo of it can be seen on page 157 of "The Arts of Meiji Japan 1868-1912". Apparently a candelabra was also given to him, but the whereabouts of that is not known to us at this time. The chrysanthemum pattern is to signify long life. The presentation was to celebrate David Jackson receiving "The Order of the Rising Sun".

SOURCE: "At the Ford of the Birches"
p. 209 David Jackson apparently attended the Annaneese School (Presbyterian) "David Jackson, Bank Manager in Hong Kong" The school was 26' by 15' by 8' and was built of stone and lime construction with a slated roof. It was built "near McCooey's cross" and had been in existence from 1860. It is possible that it closed down in 1879 when David Ranson became principal of Church Street School.

Is it possible that this is Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Wallace WRIGHT brother of Joseph David WRIGHT who owned -perhaps with his brother William - the lands of Cappog in Monaghan (over 112 acres)? SOURCE: Estate documents at Gilford Castle. There are enough of them and they cross reference with his brothers so that it seems quite likely.

Generation No. 9

11. ROBERT THOMAS9 WRIGHT (ROBERT8, ROBERT7, JOHN6, ROBERT5, ROGER WILLIAM RICHARD4, THOMAS3, JAMES2, JOHN1) was born 25 November 1864 in Monaghan, Monaghan, Ireland (Source: IGI v. 5..), and died 24 June 1937 in Barton End, Alton, Hants, UK. He married LUCY DANBY. She was born 1875, and died 1938.

Notes for ROBERT THOMAS WRIGHT:
Robert T. Wright of HSBC.

Robert T. WRIGHT is the brother of Margaret Louisa WRIGHT (wife of David JACKSON) and Martha WRIGHT (wife of Thompson BROWN). Details of other links will likely be nailed down when we get access to a copy of the probated will of George Austin Thompson BROWN, son of Martha & Thompson BROWN. The link is of interest in creating a fuller sense of the family culture and connections in international banking. I suspect a connection with the WRIGHT family of Gilford Castle, but have little to go on at this point beyond proximity and intuition as well as the brokerage firm of Wright & Hornby in Hong Kong.

There is also an interesting description of the Yokohama Earthquake in The History of the Hongkong Shanghai Bank, Vol III, Frank H.H. King, Cambridge Press, 1988 p.141-143

The staff were able to stuff cheques from the clearing in their pockets, carry two cash boxes, and put large numbers of ledgers and other books into a cart commandeered from the Post Office, which was situated next door. unfortunately the books could not be got to the ships and they were subsequently burnt. Most of the staff, however, got on board the Empress of Australia, which had been preparing to leave port when the earthquake struck; J. Caldwell arrived too late, but boarded the French Andre Lebon.

When the staff were able to return temporarily to search the ruins, they recovered various other items, including securities from the safe which Caldwell reached just in time, although a looter was making off with some of the packages; R. T .Wright, the Manager, had the securities insured by cable from the ship.

From entries in Kings history of the Hongkong Shanghai Bank, I know that in 1886, R.T. WRIGHT was the manager of HKSB Yokohama.
Also, R.T. WRIGHT was the manager of the Yokohama Branch 1910-1923 and "would be caught in the Yokohama or Kanto earthquake of 1923 and who transferred the main Japanese office to Kobe". This may be the son of the first R.T. WRIGHT - I have yet to dig that out.This is the "Tim" Wright 1864- 1937 who married Lucy Danby 1875-1938 (SOURCE Gilford Castle Family Tree)

In the footnotes relating to this account, King directs us to: the C.R. Rice account in J.R. Jones, “Personalities “file from James Cardwell, oral history interview and from J.R. Jones “Branches” file all in Group Archives. See also “Branches” p. 95, p. 97. This will have to await further exploration.

Folio 3701 - filed an affidavit to claim lands of Mullaghmore West & Killygrallen owned by his mother Sarah Jane WRIGHT. He lived at Barton End, Alton in Hampshire England at this time. "formerly of Ballinode but then of Hong Kong in China". Since he died in 1937 and the suit was launched either in that year or the year before, he may never have seen it through. His only daughter was Mrs D.L. Newbigging of Shanghai. (SOURCE OBIT)

Transcription of Miss McCready's news clippings saved in a diary at Gilford Castle. WRIGHT - On June 24, 1937, suddenly at Barton End, Alton, Hants, ROBERT THOMAS WRIGHT (TIM) late of Hongkong and Shanghai Bank, Yokohama, in his 73rd year.

13. MARTHA9 WRIGHT (ROBERT8, ROBERT7, JOHN6, ROBERT5, ROGER WILLIAM RICHARD4, THOMAS3, JAMES2, JOHN1) (Source: LDS British Vital Records Index.) was born 30 October 1870 in Monaghan, County Monaghan, Ireland, and died Bef. 1937 in Killykeera, Smithborough, County Monaghan. She married THOMPSON BROWN, son of THOMPSON BROWN and ELIZABETH JACKSON. He was born 21 August 1868 (Source: Wendy Jack Website Jack/McCullagh families.), and died 28 August 1942 in Killynure House, Armagh (Source: Newsclipping from McCready.).

Notes for MARTHA WRIGHT:
There are 11 cousins on the Wright side.

David Hugh Plunkett Brown got a letter from one of these cousins suggesting that since they had all benefited from the Estate of George Austin Jackson Brown (to the tune of $3,000 each) that a drinking fountain be set up in his memory. David wrote back saying that he had other things to do rather than a drinking fountain in Australia. His brother and sister found out about this afterwards.

Notes for THOMPSON BROWN:
Story told by a neighbour, Eugene Fegan who was seven years old at the time, "Thompson Brown, he just dropped dead in the yard." On my most recent visit, I asked him about this again. "I seen him walk down the lane there, between the chestnut trees. OUt walking, he were. And he just like that. Fell over. It made a big impression on me. A private funeral it was. Strange." This last comment would refer to the fact that there would be no following of the casket to the resting place as was the custom in the Catholic community (which Eugene and his family would have belonged to).

His only son died in Australia.
