Badenoch, P.

Updated October 23, 2014

P. Badenoch, shipwright, was listed as a resident of Hong Kong from 1845 to 1848. Queen's Road was listed as his address in 1846.

There was a record, dated May 1, 1855, of one P. Badenoch, shipwright by profession, who owned a company by the name of Badenoch & Co. in Singapore. I think these two were the same person. Also, I will be quite surprised if P. Badenoch and Alexander Badenoch were not related. They might also have family living in Singapore, perhaps even engaged in the same trade.
