Historical Hebrew inscription is misspelled. (Surname says “Ergar”.)

Flora arrived in HK around 1912, with the boys but possibly without her husband. He may have remained in Bahrain or perhaps he had already died.

She was an Ellis. It’s possible that John (Jacob) died soon after Sidney was born. Faced with limited financial prospects in Bahrain, she packed up the boys at the suggestion of the Ellis family, who already had a presence in HK. Felix Maurice Ellis (2B1) was probably her nephew.

She lived at 39 Stubbs Road.
