(p.145) 4 The Parsis in Hong Kong and the China Seas
The Zoroastrian Diaspora

John R. Hinnells

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the conditions of Parsis in Hong Kong and the China Seas. It suggests that the Paris settling in the China Seas were acutely conscious of the huge cultural differences between them and the wider population in the same way that the Parsis in Indian were conscious of the ancestry they share with aspects of Hinduism. This chapter traces the history of the Parsis in Hong Kong and China Seas from the days of the earliest Parsi businessman in the region, Hirji Jivanji Readymoney in 1756, and situates the Parsis in the wider setting of British and Indian trade in the region.

Keywords:   Parsis, Hong Kong, China Seas, cultural differences, Hirji Jivanji Readymoney
