CONNECTIONS TO OUR FAMILY HISTORY - THE FAR EAST AND HSBC
The Silver Bowl website always has Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915) at the centre of its web of family connections. The other pages on this website focus on predominately Irish and English materials relating to the Silver Bowl story. There are also many documents which I have posted elsewhere which also relate to Thomas Jackson and his family that are not mentioned on this page.

|1906-7 Who's Who in the Far East. This is a lengthy transcription - 21 pages of selected and annotated text. I have annotated all the entries that referred to men who had some sort of connection to Ireland. My purpose is that I am trying to learn more about the Irish Diaspora in the region during the late 1800s. If there was no known connection to either Ireland of HSBC, I did not include mention (or if I did - it was only because my nose twitched indicating some level of interest).||August 12, 2012|

|ALLENs in the Far East - a table. Not all of these ALLENs are related to the story of the Silver Bowl. Some are included not only for the purposes of elimination, but also in the hopes that others may find the information to be of use.||March 5, 2014|
|Creggan on The Peak. Creggan was the name of Thomas Jackson’s home built in the very early days of construction on The Peak in Hong Kong. It was built sometime between 1877 and 1880. The family went back and forth between England and Hong Kong several times. During the winter, when the weather was more hospitable, they often stayed in HSBC accommodation closer to the bank. I have assembled the following table to help pin down when the Jackson family was in Hong Kong and more precisely when Creggan was built.||March 6, 2014|
|Mentions of SCOTT men (women were not included) in the 1877 and 1879 Trade Directories of China, Japan, the Phillipines &c. Hong Kong. I am curious how many of these SCOTTs are related, in one way or another, to William Ramsay SCOTT (1838-1909). He was a brother-in-law of Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915). My interest is as much with their business connections as it is with their famililial ties.||March 7, 2014|
