    To answer John Pollards question.
    The stone plaque still remains but not on the building shown here – next door
    We put up a plaque on the house he was born in (shown here) as otherwise it was not noted.
    A large Methodist service in Hong Kong that I attended in 2015 mentioned him by name as one of their founders under God. He was a great man.

    I see there’s an old Building News 1898 print for sale on Ebay right now 14/06/2021 of the Waverley Park Chapel and Schools. The Building News was a wonderful resource for architecture with added information pertaining to the buildings that were featured. See Ebay link here:

  • Rev Samuel Pollard and Rev R.Heber Goldsworthy graves in SW China

    I think Heber Goldsworthy was a great great uncle. My mum has a copy of a Methodist magazine that details the tragedy of his murder. I also have family photos which I think feature Heber.

  • Mission to Stonegateway, China (video)

    Records associated with Methodist Missionaries are held and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in the University of London on behalf of the church. I would suggest that you make contact with SOAS to see if they would accept them into that collection. Alternatively you could contact the Liaison Officer for Methodist Archives (email: who will be happy to offer further guidance on the most sensible option.
