"Gibb, Livingston, which - like Gilmans - may be seen as a smaller
yet similar version of Dodwells, is the second oldest (after Jardines)
trading firm in Hong Kong. It was founded by two Scotsmen, Thomas
Augustus Gibb and William Potter Livingston, in Canton, in 1836. There
it occupied one building which served as an office, a warehouse and a
esidence. The firm imported English cottons and woollens and exported
tea and silk. Silver bullion was used as payment. The two founders
soon started to diversify into such fields as shirtings, velveteen,
leather and tin plate, and acted as agents for a large number of
sailing ships. At an early date four Gibbs worked in the firm.
Branches were opened in Hong Kong (1841), Amoy and Shanghai. In
addition to the import-export trade Gibb Livingston acted as agents
for Ben Line steamships, although, unlike Dodwells, it also acquired
its own tea clippers. Then, in 1899, it purchased a fleet of steamers
which sailed as the Gibb Line." Source: Waters, Dan: "Hong Kong Hongs

"To divers of his kings and queens," writes Prince, "he did special
duties and services, being in commission of the peace near forty
years, and high sheriff of the county of Devon in the late noble Queen
Elizabeth's reign, An. 28. He was ever most virtuously affected, sound
in religion, faithful and serviceable to his Princes, upright and
zealous in justice, beating down vice, preferring the virtuous, and a
keeper of great hospitality. His youth, in King Henry VIII's days, he
spent at court, and in travel beyond the seas with honourable knights
and gentlemen, first into France, Flanders, and Italy, thence they
crossed the Adriatic sea, and so into Hungary and Greece, where they
served against the Turks at the siege of Buda. Also he served at
Bulloin, when his king, Henry VIII was present. Also at Laundersey,
and was at the siege and burning of Treport, in France, &c. Also in
the Western Rebellion against Edward VI he having charge of a troop of
horsemen, did special good services, when in suppressing and
confounding those traytors, he being sorely wounded and hurt, it
pleased the king's majesty of his princely bounty to grant his warrant
to the Earl of Bedford, then general of those wars, for the rewarding
the said Richard Reynell with the demesnes of Weston Peverill, and
house called Pennicross, in Devon, near Plymouth. This Richard left
behind him 5 sons, whereof 4 are knights, all which sons even from
their infancy he ever with godly care and great charge maintain'd in
the schools of virtue and learning, viz. at the universities, inns of
court, their prince's court, travels into Germany, France, and Italy,
&c. All which sons being virtuously disposed, religious and well
qualified, are at this day serviceable in some good degree or other to
their king's majesty, and their country. Lastly it is generally noted
and known, that the aforesaid 5 sons are a knot of as worthy and
serviceable gentlemen as any in the Western parts of this kingdom of
England." (Source: Prince, John (1701) Danmonii orientales illustres:

in parliament. He added to his large possessions, by purchase from the
Courtenays, the manor and parish of West Ogwell, which, like East
Ogwell to which it is contiguous, was, in the reign of Henry II held
by Hugh Pictavensis, to whom succeeded Robert Peytevin. From his
family it came to the Courtenays, Earls of Devon, who sold it as
before stated. He married Agnes, daughter of John Southcote, esq. of
Indiho, in the parish of Bovey Tracey, in Devon, and dying when in the
office of high sheriff, 29 July 1585, was buried amongst his ancestors
in East Ogwell Church.

About 6 years after the death of his father, Lieut Thomas Reynell, in
Sept 1777 at the battle of Freeman's Farm during the American War of
Independence, Richard Littleton Reynell joined his father's old
Regiment, the 62nd, as an Ensign with a commission dated 23 May 1783.
Given his young age (11 years old), this late-war measure may have
been done to afford him an income. Posted as an Ensign in one of the
Regiment's additional companies, Reynell, along with the other
additional company officers, was soon after placed on half-pay due to
post-war downsizing. Later in life, he settled in America, dying in
Baltimore, Maryland. He and his youngest brother Thomas both came to
inherit the Baronetcy of the Reynell family (missed by their father
due to his death), which terminated upon Thomas' death in 1848.

REYNEL, of Laleham, in the County of Middlesex, Bart., who departed
this life on the 12th day of September, 1775, aged 78. Sir Thomas was
lineally descended from Sir Richard Reynel of Rytney in the County of
Somerset, Knt., and Captain of the Castles at Exeter and Launceston,
in the year 1191. He married Sarah, daughter and co-heir of Richard
Righton of Chipping Norton, in the County of Oxford, Esq., by whom he
had issue, two sons, Richard and Thomas, who survived him.
Underneath, also, are deposited the remains of Sir RICHARD REYNEL,
Bart., eldest surviving son of the abovenamed Sir Thomas Reynel, who
departed this life on the 27th Nov., 1798, aged 67, a man of approved

egiment, and fell in the memorable battle of Saratoga, on the 19th
September 1777, aged 31, bravely fighting for his country. Sir
