Lem Cue

Lem Cue (Canton 1843 ?? - 7 January 1902 )

Several Chinese men identified as "Ah Cue" immigrated to Australia in the mid 1800s. My Chinese friends tell me that "Ah" is more an honorific or slang addition to a name, than an actual name, and that "Cue" is almost certainly a given name, but that "Lem" is a relatively common family name. One particular "Ah Cue" was naturalised on 11 Sep 1873 (776/213), which was four years after my ancestor was married, which makes me thinks that that this might be a match, but I can't be sure. Another possibility is Ah Cue.

He was named as William Lemcue on Emily Lemcue's marriage certificate in 1905.

In any event Cue married Sarah Doncaster in 1869.
