|Historical||This was Edgar’s third marriage. He was born in 1869. It appears that he and Maud had no children but he did have a son, also named Edgar Mortimer Carnrick, with his second wife. Edgar (Sr.) died in 1934 in Los Angeles. He is buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Utility Columbarium, Lot 0, Space 523448) in Glendale, CA.
Maud sailed on the Empress of Australia to New York in April 1935. The ship’s manifest lists her home address as 502 Park Avenue, NY, so when did she come to Hong Kong? A family story is that she often told them that she wanted to walk into the South China Sea and never come back. As she drowned in Repulse Bay, perhaps she came to HK to kill herself.
