|Historical||Alexander arrived in HK in 1959. He was appointed the agent for Hong Kong of the South British Insurance Company in 1886. On July 24, 1889, a new agent was appointed. It is unclear whether he left the company at that point or if he was too ill to continue working as he died just a few months later.
He married Alice on September 1, 1887.
