Diplomatic Question - soc.genealogy.britain | Google Groups:
"Death Of Sir George Phillippo.
The death is announced at Geneva, at the age of 81, of the Hon. Sir George
He held a number of Colonial appointments, including that of Chief Justice
of Hong-Kong, and was British Consul at Geneva from 1897 to 1910. He was
knighted in 1882.

I have been able to follow his career around various parts of the world,
but know absolutely nothing about his personal life. He was born in
Spanish Town, Jamaica c, 1833 and that's all I know."
