Chan A-kuen 陳亞權, alias Chinam 齊南, opium trader, was recorded as a resident of Hong Kong from 1843 to 1844. Chan was one of the three partners in the Canton opium firm Tun Wo 敦和. He came to Hong Kong in 1843 and returned the following year to Canton, his usual domicile, where he died shortly afterward.
