Husband: Choie Kum Yok
Kum Yok had established a large general merchant and timber business in the Wong Sha suburb of Canton. In addition, he had inherited a half-share in Sew Hoy and Sons Limited, importers, warehousemen and manufacturers in Dunedin, New Zealand; this was his father’s merchant business. The other shareholder was Kum Yok’s brother Choie Kum Poy, who was otherwise known as Kum Poy Sew Hoy, since nearly all of Choie Sew Hoy’s descendants in New Zealand adopted ‘Sew Hoy’ as their surname.
Choie Kum Yok, had returned to Guangzhou, China from New Zealand in 1897; he was the elder of the two sons of Choie Sew Hoy, known as Charles Sew Hoy in New Zealand.
