Knight Family Collection

Charles Crosby Knight (1883-1942) worked for Butterfield & Swire, as a Manager in Hong Kong until retirement in 1936. He was known up and down the South China coast as ‘Silent Knight’ owing to his taciturn (but fair-minded) nature. Florence M. Knight (1881-1972) was a secretary with the Asiatic Petroleum Company. Trevor G.C. Knight M.B.E. (1915-2011) worked for the Peking & Tientsin Times from 1934 to 1938, and then for Butterfield & Swire until 1960. Only a selection of this collection is currently online – more to come. HPC refs: Kn-s, Kn01, Kn02, Kn03.
