How to find more information about Sir Edward Youde
Sir Edward Youde was the British Ambassador to China and the Governor of Hong Kong. A hospital in Hong Kong is named after his wife, Pamela Youde. He told my cousin that he is undoubtedly related to us but didn't know how. I am trying to link him to my tree but I can find almost nothing about him or his wife. I have found a very brief biography of her at the Pamela Youde Hospital site and I have found the names of their children, Jennifer and Deborah, and that he was born in Penarth, Wales. And I have found his brief obituaries from US newspapers. His obituary says he is buried at Westminster Abbey cemetery. I have not found his parents, or siblings if any. I have traced my own family back to Wales and Shropshire. I wonder if the lack of information has to do with his rank in the British Foreign Service. I have not attempted to look at UK Family Search Centers. Any suggestions on how to find the missing links?
