"My great-grandfather Tamamotto CHIYOKICHI was born around 1857 in Tokyo, Japan. He married Elizabeth Amelia BOOKER in the 2/4 of 1888 in Kensington, London, England. The surname was later truncated to CHIYO. It is speculated that he was perhaps a sailor. He later was a performer- acrobat in the English circus".
Any trace of an AZW sailor PO Tom?

Ho Sin Chuan (Chinese Naval Officer) is not on the Medal Roll, but is listed on the Ship’s Medical and Surgical Journal 1 April 1879 for “melancholia,” and transferred to Naval Hospital, Simon’s Bay 16 April. From there he was invalided to England and subsequently returned to China. He is on the Navy List (December 1878) as a Foreign Officer serving on a Royal Navy ship (Boadicea).
