1854 September 23. Testimony of Captain George Julius DARE. He was the father of Amelia Lydia DARE, and hence the father-in-law of Sir Thomas Jackson. Although he died long before TJ arrived in Hong Kong, his business and family connections were of considerable use to TJ, and hence to HSBC. His Singapore ship chandler business was situated about 100 metres away from where HSBC built its main Singapore office decades later, in 1892. His sons carried on after his death, based at first at Yokohama, and then at Singapore. One of his sons, Alfred Henry DARE was the last junior to be recruited for HSBC from the region.
