|Historical||Son, Moses, was a POW in Sri Lanka during WWI. (He was a citizen of the Austro-Hungarian empire, apparently, so he was considered to be an enemy of the British forces.) He was employed by the Chinese Maritime Customs Service, so he was a sailor. This would explain why his name cannot be found on any jurors’ list in Hong Kong. He probably wasn’t staying in Hong Kong for long enough periods to get called for jury duty.
The 1896 jurors’ list contains a Josef Meubrum who was the innkeeper of The Land We Live In Hotel located on Queen’s Road Central. This is no doubt her husband Gustav Neubrunn.
Rob Kun wrote on 18 February 2016:
“My mother-in-law’s mother was adopted by a Marian Neubrunn (1873-1928), who is buried in the Chinese Christian cemetery at Pok Fu Lam. Marian was an Asian lady married to Moses Neubrunn.
“Moses and Marian appear to have been using the Chinese surname Lui based on what we can tell of the inscriptions written in Chinese, which I hypothesize may have been re-anglicized as Lewis in their children Alexander and Pauline.”
There’s a Naphtali Karp who is a rabbi in Baltimore. He may be related to Hinde’s family.
A Friedrich Neubrunn (b. April 18, 1893; d. September 7, 1940) was apparently buried in the Jewish cemetery in Shanghai. Records show he was from Vienna. He may have been a cousin who came to Shanghai as a refugee in 1938/39.
