Sir Robert Hart1,2,3

M, #87396, b. 20 February 1835, d. 20 September 1911
  • Birth*: 20 February 1835; Dungannon St., Portadown, Armagh Co., Ulster, Ireland; Date 1835 & location Portadown, Ireland per 1911 Census. "Robert Hart was born into a devout Methodist family in Dungannon Street, Portadown, County Armagh, Ulster,[1] in 1835. His father, Henry Hart (1806–1875) worked in distilleries, and married a farmer’s daughter, Ann Edgar, in 1834. Robert Hart was educated at a Wesleyan school in Taunton, Somerset, then at Wesley Connexional School, Dublin, and at the age of 15 was sent to Queen’s University, Belfast, where he graduated in 1853. He would become, after his retirement, Pro-Chancellor of Queen’s University." per Wikipedia per Death Reg'n. of his son Arthur Hart.2,4,5
  • Marriage*: 1857; China; "Hart’s devotion to his work played havoc with his emotional life. As a young man, in spite of his Methodist conscience, he had bouts of promiscuity. In 1857 he took a Chinese concubine, Ayao, with whom he had three children and for whom he developed genuine affection and respect. On becoming Inspector-General in 1863, he realised he must put her away and find a respectable wife during his first leave in 1866. He gave her a generous settlement, provided for the children (Anna, Herbert and Arthur Hart), and found them a home in London. He then quickly courted and married Hester Bredon of Portadown, daughter of his aunt’s doctor [14] They too had three children, Evelyn, Robert and Mabel, but Hart did not see much of them, as Hester returned to Britain in 1876, and after a brief reunion in 1878–82, she and the children lived in London. Hart took an interest in the progress of his illegitimate children, but made no direct contact with them. In his last decade, he was obliged to acknowledge them by legal declarations.[15] He was disappointed in the adult lives of his three legitimate children, yet acknowledged that he had been a neglectful father. After 1882 he lived a celibate life, but had deep friendships with many girls and women, amongst whom were three generations of the Carrall family. Many of his male staff felt he was a supportive friend as well as a demanding superior.[16] He got to know all his promising young men while they were students learning Chinese under his eyes in Peking, for he insisted that the ability to speak and write Mandarin Chinese was essential for promotion to Commissioner in charge of a Chinese port." from Wikipedia
