A Leading Firm Of Hong Kong Accountants: An Armenian Connection To India

After the death of Sir Paul Chater in Hong Kong, his complex estate and accounts were taken care of by a local firm of accountants called Hennessey Seth & Co (previously Percy Smith Seth & Fleming). This is a rare in-tact company wax seal of Hennessey Seth & Co firm from an original document of accounts.

John Hennessey Seth a founding partner with Percy Smith was born to Armenian parents in Singapore in 1884.  His parents Arathoon and Catherine Seth were cousins who married and their families can be traced back to the vibrant and influential Armenians families of Madras of the mid to late 18th century.
